2006 Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon

SKU #1041280

This is the second wine of Stefan Von Neipperg's Chateau d'Aiguilhe, which is fresh, pure merlot with some spice - a perfect everyday Bordeaux. K&L's Steve Greer says: "Sweet fruit aromas dominate this wine's nose as well as its palate with a nice background of spice. The beauty here comes from the polished tannins and lower-than-usual acidity, which combine to give this wine its elegant mouthfeel. A lovely wine with a slightly spicy finish."

The second wine from Chateau d'Aiguilhe, this Merlot-based wine is a joy to drink. The Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe reflects the elegance of the 2006 vintage and the softness of the Merlot. It is definitely from Bordeaux, with its structure and hint of earthiness. Delicious alone, this wine will go great with red meats.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
