Château d'Aiguilhe

Château d'Aiguilhe

The winery was known as Chateau La Fleur d’Aiguilhe, but in 1989 Stephan von Neipperg renamed it Chateau d’Aiguilhe. In French it means needle and refers to the rocky place in the Cotes de Castillon region, within the chateau where the remains of a 13th century Templar fortress are located. The chateau has a unique location and has some of the most beautiful vineyards in the Cotes-de-castillon appeal. Today the property owns 111 hectares, of which 50 are planted with vineyards with southern exposure and excellent natural drainage. The plantations are 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc and are grown in a sustainable and biodynamic way without the use of pesticides. The chief oenologist is Jean-Patrick Meyrignac, who respects the terroir and transfers it to the cellar. The grapes are not crushed, but by gravity are lowered into the vessels. Each plot has its own vinification vessel. Chateau d’Aiguilhe wines are light

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
