Description

"AC Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois16/20 Jancis Robinson MW16/20 Decanter“Well-extracted blackcurrant fruit, good depth and character, good wine Decanter""Long-time readers know d’Aurilhac is one of my favourite under-the-radar Bordeaux in top vintages. This impressively made Medoc offers a lot of quality for its price."" Robert Parker, a consistently fine estate which stands on the gravelly Medoc plain looking out over the Gironde. The 20 hectares of Chateaux d`Aurilhac stretch on a plateau of clay, sand and gravels. This is one of the best soils of the commune of Saint Seurin de Cadourne (a canton of Pauillac), where the vine has been cultivated since the Middle Ages.

Smells

a heavenly bouquet of casis, seaweed, dark berry fruits, wet wool with brown spices and fresh tobacco leaves.

Tastes

This offers the best of the Haut Medoc, and the spectacular 2016 vintage; powerfully concentrated with freshness highlighted by a majority of Cabernet varietals in the blend. Sublime tannins weave their magic throughout, with the classic telltale structure of Cabernet, finishing long and salivating. A wonderful wine that will cellar well for 10 years+
