Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe 2018
This is the second wine from Château d'Aiguilhe, whose property dates back to the 12th century and is linked to the Knights Templar.The current château, a "fortified farmhouse," was built in the 13th century.
Chateau d'Aiguilhe is located on hills overlooking the Right Bank of the Dordogne River, on the border between the Cotes de Castillon and Saint-Emilion appellations. This 272-acre estate has 123.5 acres of vines, which are planted exclusively on the upper part of the hills. The vineyard has excellent natural drainage and south-facing sun exposure. This terroir provides wonderful hydric regulation all year round and, combined with vines an average of 28 years old, produces outstanding grapes. The minerals in the clay-limestone soil account for a wine of both power and finesse in which the roundness of merlot marries beautifully with the concentration and complexity of cabernet franc.
