Reviews for 2011 Chateau d'Aiguilhe Bordeaux Blend

JS 90
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2012
This is very savory with a meat and berry character. Medium body with fine tannins. Juicy and delicious. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

This has overt spiced toast anise and mocha notes to soak up but there's a good core of black cherry and blueberry fruit that should be up to the task. Slightly rustic cedary note checks in on the finish but there's flesh...

Slightly rustic cedary note checks in on the finish but there's flesh here to harmonize that too.-J.M.

Good full ruby. Enticing aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, chocolate and spicy oak. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with lovely violet lift to the black fruit and herb flavors. Finishes very long and fresh: you can... Good full ruby. Enticing aromas of boysenberry, black cherry, chocolate and spicy oak. Bright and juicy in the mouth, with lovely violet lift to the black fruit and herb flavors. Finishes very long and fresh: you can really tell these vines grow on calcaire-rich soils! A lovely wine that is drinking well already but has the stuffing to last another ten years. A major success for the vintage.

Opaque and inky in color with a deep crimson rim. Smoky dark ripe fruit on the palate is enhanced with subtle mineral undertones. Very finessed in style with sexy up-front fruit and terrific balance. A complete and balanced wine. Will drink well on release and can be enjoyed over the next decade.
