2009 d'Aiguilhe, Côtes de Castillon

SKU #1093657 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Intense aromas of sliced mushrooms, blackberries and spices follow through to a full body, with sweet, ripe fruit, velvety tannins and a fresh clean finish. Tangy and fresh. Best ever from here and one of the values of the vintage. Best in 2016. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tiny yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare have produced a wine with terrific fruit intensity, a moderately tannic structure, and hints of chocolate, cedar, spice box, and earth. Although not as big as I expected given the vintage, it is well-made and impressively endowed. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2010)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Expressive, inviting aromas of black raspberry and minerals. Dense, sweet and seamless, with lovely energy and definition to its its dark raspberry and chocolate flavors. Finishes with smooth, suave tannins and slow-building length. The best result to date from this chateau, which is owned by Stephan von Neipperg, proprietor of Canon La Gaffeliere and La Mondotte. This wine aged on its lees for 17 months before being bottled without fining or filtration. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Alluring aromas and flavors of toast, mineral and roasted plum are expressive and energetic in this rich, modern red. The texture is broad yet polished, with well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. (TM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)
