From the famous family of Comte de Neipperg, the 2005 D’Aiguilhe is sensational and may be one of the best cuvées I have ever tasted from Neipperg and his Côtes de Castillon estate. This wine has an opaque purple color and loads of Christmas fruitcake, licorice and crushed chalk along with plenty of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit. Full-bodied, rich, still structured and tannic, but super-concentrated, this is an amazing effort in 2005. Give it another several years of bottle age and drink it over the following 20 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Displays gorgeous aromas of vanilla bean mineral raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied with very round soft tannins and a long rich fruity finish. Beautiful. Best after 2016. 8330 cases made. –JS

(14.5% alcohol) Bright ruby-red. Almost candied sweetness to the aromas and flavors of pungent black fruits and minerals. Then wonderfully ripe full and sweet in the mouth with captivating freshness. The tannins arrive... (14.5% alcohol) Bright ruby-red. Almost candied sweetness to the aromas and flavors of pungent black fruits and minerals. Then wonderfully ripe full and sweet in the mouth with captivating freshness. The tannins arrive very late allowing the fruit to expand and linger. "We need great ripeness on this chalky site or else we get bad tannins" noted von Neipperg. One of the great values of the vintage: this opened at 13 euros.
