Aiguilhe酒莊位於多爾多涅河右岸坡地的最高處,也是卡斯蒂永山坡和聖愛美倫產區的分界線。
在現今占地110公頃的園區內,50公 頃用於葡萄種植。所有的葡萄都種植于山坡高處,整體朝南,擁有自然排水和充分日照的有利條件。土地為黏土石灰岩和泥質黏土的土質,上層為一薄層較為貧瘠的 土壤,下部為石灰質地層。這樣的地層確保了葡萄植株在一年四季都享有出色的水利調節系統。土壤狀況和植株的株齡(平均株齡為28年)搭配完美,各種環境條件都非常有利於葡萄種植。

Château d'Aiguilhe is located on hills overlooking the Right Bank of the Dordogne River, on the border between the Côtes de Castillon and Saint-Emilion appellations.
This 110 hectare estate has 50 hectares of vines, which are planted exclusively on the upper part of the hills. The vineyard has excellent natural drainage and south-facing sun exposure.

The thin layer of clay-limestone and clay-silt topsoil covers a layer of rather meagre soil on a limestone substratum. This terroir provides wonderful hydric regulation all year round and, combined with vines an average of 28 years old, produces outstanding grapes.

Appellation:
Cotes de Castillon

Country of Origin:
Bordeaux, France

Grape Varieties:
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

Tasting Notes:

(2007)
the 2007 d-Aiguilhe is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. A dark ruby/purple color is followed by sweet black currant, charcoal, roasted herb, and spice box aromas presented in a weighty, medium to full-bodied, surprisingly rich, lush style.

(2008)
the opaque plum/ruby/purple-tinged 2008 d’Aiguilhe reveals abundant notes of licorice, fruitcake, black currants and kirsch, sweet tannin, a round, generous texture and impressive purity as well as length. It should be enjoyed over the next 6-8 years.

(2010)
Purplish red in colour, this red boasts a medium nose exuding woody, spicy, floral and fruity aromas. Discover this medium-bodied wine expressing refreshing acidity and offering a broad texture and fleshy tannins. It also unveils a medium mouthfeel that leads into a medium finish.

(2011)
This reliable, over-achieving Castillon boasts a dense ruby/purple color in addition to abundant black currant and black cherry fruit intermixed with notions of forest floor and spring flowers. A juicy, medium to full-bodied mouthfeel as well as super purity and ripeness, and beautiful integration of oak, acidity, tannin and alcohol suggest this delicious, front end-loaded value selection should drink nicely for 8-10 years.

(2012)
One of the better wines from Castillon, this wine, from the Neipperg family, exhibits a dark ruby/purple color, nice spice, earth and red and black fruits. It is medium-bodied with light tannin and a soft underbelly. Drink it over the next 5-7 years. A sleeper.
