Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2017
(WS91-94 points) Well-formed and integrated already, with a fleshy edge and good energy throughout. Features plum, anise and blackberry fruit, accented by a streak of bramble. A tasty wine in the making. — J.M.

(JL92-94 points) Deep in color, the wine offers dark, black cherry liqueur, espresso, blackberry, and chocolate nuances. There is flesh, freshness and depth of flavor, with supple, sensual textures and a lush, ripe, dark, red fruit filled finish. The wine was produced from blending 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc.

A rush of cherry, red plum, espresso, sweet spice and flowers makes a strong first impression. Plump, juicy and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2016 hits all the right notes. This succulent, inviting wine is a terrific effort from Stephan von Neipperg and his team. Tasted two times.

(WA90-92 points) The 2016 Chateau d'Aiguilhe is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc picked from 30 September until 18 October, matured in 30% new oak. It has a warm and sensual bouquet: small macerated black cherries, blueberry and sloes, a light floral tincture emerging with time. This has a little more strictness compared to the 2015 last year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and good body. Sappy black fruit, a touch of spice towards the finish, and you have yourself a very fine Côtes de Castillon. - Neal Martin
