2016 Cru Bourgeois Médoc
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv|
Intense violet-scented cherries on the nose, dark, seductive and enticing. On the palate, a juicy core of red cherries, raspberries and a hint of blueberry. Fresh and alive with tannins that support but don't overwhelm. Plenty of life ahead but giving great pleasure now. Rating: 92 Decanter Magazine (May 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Quite intense and juicy with some red pimento powder aroma. Lots of breadth and fun even if far from the most concentrated on the palate. Racy. Drinking range: 2023 - 2030 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Nov 2019)
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.
