    Winemaker's Notes:

    "A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2001 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color to the rim as well as a sumptuous bouquet of spice box, licorice, black currants, and loamy, earthy characteristics. Made in a suave, savory style, with medium body, sweet tannin, ripe fruit, and loads of balance as well as elegance, this beauty will drink well for 10+ years. It is a sleeper of the vintage. This large estate is owned by Stephan von Neipperg, who hired guru winemaking consultant Stephane Derenoncourt to make the wine."
    -Wine Advocate

    Stephan von Neipperg has now decided to leave his mark on Château d'Aiguilhe, one of the finest vineyards in the Côtes de Castillon. Château d'Aiguilhe is located off the beaten track, quite a distance from the usual wine trail. The château ruins bear witness to the Castillon region's long history.
