Winemaker's Notes

Situated in the commune of St Seurin de Cadourne (canton of Pauillac), the 16 hectares of vines belonging to châteaux d'Aurilhac and La Fagotte are planted in a single piece on a clayey-sandy/gravelly plateau overlooking the Gironde. The whole of the crop is strictly hand-sorted before vatting which lasts between 21 and 30 days depending on the way the must develops. After selection, only wine from the best vats is put under the Château d'Aurilhac label after the traditional Médoc assemblage. Aged in barrels of merrain oak from the Allier and the Vosges, the wine is meticulously bottled by the owners themselves.

"Probably the best wine I have yet tasted from this Haut-Medoc, sweet cassis flavors intermixed with tobacco, loamy soil notes, and black currants are round, generous, and pure. With persistence in the mouth as well as plenty of glycerin and fruit hiding the light to moderate tannin, it should drink well for up to a decade."
-Wine Advocate
