Winemaker's Notes

A consistently fine estate which stands on the gravelly Medoc plain looking out over the Gironde. The vineyard is predominantly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, combining to give a typically vigorous blackcurrant, plum and spice scented wine with firm yet supple tannins

The 20 hectares of Chateaux d'Aurilhac stretch on a plateau of clay, sand and gravels. This is one of the best soils of the commune of Saint Seurin de Cadourne (a canton of Pauillac), where the vine has been cultivated since the Middle Ages.

Critical Acclaim

"This dense ruby/purple-colored wine displays plenty of creme de cassis, charcoal, spice box, and spring flowers. Deep, medium to full-bodied, with superb richness, silky but noticeable tannins, and a long finish, this wine has more in common with a classified growth than a cru bourgeois. This is a relatively big wine that is clearly a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years."
