The 2014 Château d’Aiguilhe, Côtes de Bordeaux Castillon is a red wine made from a blend of Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). The estate belongs to the German wine entrepreneur Stephan von Niepperg since 1989 and it is widely renown for rich and opulent Merlot based wines.
Like several wines in the von Niepperg portfolio, the 2014 Château d’Aiguilhe, Côtes de Bordeaux Castillon has been vinified in wooden vats for thirty days and aged for 14 months, with as little as 30% of the barrels being from new French oak. The wine has not gone through fining to preserve its character, hence some decanting is worth considering before serving.
The features of this specific wine are red and dark fruit, chocolate and spice, making it a suitable company for some juicy dishes such as beef burgers or bolognese. In terms of the occasions when you might want to consider to uncork a 2014 Château d’Aiguilhe, Côtes de Bordeaux Castillon, we would either pick a cold winter’s night in or a business meeting where you want to impress your contacts.
