WS 92
Wine Spectator

Open-knit in feel, with cassis and cherry compote flavors backed by subtle vanilla, floral and rooibos tea accents. Shows a lingering freshness. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2027.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 d'Aiguilhe features notions of baked plums, black cherries and mulberries with hints of underbrush, bouquet garni and tobacco with a waft of cast-iron pan. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is coated with expressive black fruit layers and loads of earthy suggestions, framed by fine-grained tannins, finishing long and refreshing.

JS 90
James Suckling

A red with pretty notes of salt, vanilla and currants. Medium body. Tight and harmonious. Creamy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now.

Jeb Dunnuck

Due to the frost, there's only one-third of the normal production of the 2017 Chateau D'Aiguilhe. Nevertheless, it’s an outstanding wine based on a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It offers more upfront blue fruits and hints of cassis as well as loads of violets and spring flowers. With good concentration, fine tannins, plenty of mid-palate depth, and outstanding length, it's ideal for drinking over the coming 7-8 years.

Wine Enthusiast

This rich, smoky wine is generous with its fruits and fine tannins. Its fruity character comes through the tannins to give a powerful wine, packed with jammy blackberry flavors. Drink from 2021. Multiple U.S. importers.

Chateau d'Aiguilhe, France
Stephan von Neipperg's Saint-Emilion estates have received praise from around the world for their excellent quality. von Neipperg has also decided to leave his mark on Chateau d'Aiguilhe, one of the finest vineyards in the Côtes de Castillon. Chateau d'Aiguilhe has 65 hectares, of which 42 are devoted to producing wine. The vineyards are planted on the upper part of the slopes and thus have excellent natural drainage and sun exposure.

The estate is expertly managed by Jean-Patrick Meyrignac. It benefits from the tried and tested winegrowing methods used by Stephan von Neipperg at his Saint-Emilion estates: letting the terroir express itself fully, low yields and a very flexible approach to winemaking.
