Chateau d'Aiguilhe, Castillon, Côtes de Bordeaux 2012

In Stock Now!

Formerly known as Côtes de Castillon, this appellation east of Libourne has shown great potential over the last decade, with several ambitious wines being made from south facing vineyards on the hills above the Dordogne river. Aiguilhe is one of the prestigious group of Chateaux (including Clos de l’Oratoire, Canon La Gaffelière and La Mondotte) owned by Count Stephan von Neipperg and Magali Malet-Serres, and has benefited from huge investment since its purchase in 1998.
