Dark crimson. Healthy and full of life. Very bumptious and vibrant on the nose. Mmm - exceptionally ripe and seductive! Only on the very end of the palate does the acidity start to insist. Exceptionally luscious texture. Very well done! Drinking range: 2015 - 2023 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2017)

Château d'Aurilhac

Managed by Eric Nieuwaal, Châteaux d’Aurilhac and La Fagotte cover 21 hectares in the commune of Saint Seurin de Cadourne, where vines have been grown since the middle ages.

Situated in the very north of the Haut-Médoc appellation, amongst the vineyards that run from the drainage channel at the top of St Estèphe, to the waterway that marks the beginning of the Médoc – the Chenal de la Maréchale.

The vineyard was replanted in 1983 using rootstocks which were better adapted to the nature of the soil – clay, sand and gravel – in order to produce high quality wines with classic Bordeaux characteristics. The entire harvest is hand sorted before entering stainless-steel, temperature controlled vats. Generally, the wine is aged for about one year in oak barrels in order to make it slightly more rounded, before being bottle at the château.
