Chateau D'Aiguilhe Comtes de Neippergexhibits a dense purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet bouquet of melted chocolate, blackberries, cassis, and cherries. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it is an opulent, rich effort to enjoy during its first 10-12 years of life.

Medium red. Reticent aromas of red fruits, coffee, roasted meat and mocha; a bit low-toned today. Superripe, sweet and densely packed; large-scaled for a wine from this property but quite closed today, hinting at an almost roasted ripeness. Atypicall... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, there are approximately 2,000 cases of this fabulous sleeper of the vintage.

For opulence, decadence, and sexiness, this 2005 is hard to resist. One of the vintage�s most flamboyant efforts, it is a gorgeous blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. With a stunningly exotic nose of espresso roast, a juicy meat and herb concoction, spice box, chocolate, incense, and copious quantities of sweet, ripe black cherry and blackberry fruit, this full-throttle St. Emilion exhibits good structure (because of the vintage�s sound acid levels) and high, but velvety tannin. It is a brilliant effort from proprietor Stephan von Neipperg. I would not discount its aging potential as the 1990, which I thought would have a short aging curve, is still going strong at age 18. The 2005 should easily last 20-25 years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2030.

Displays gorgeous aromas of vanilla bean, mineral, raspberry and blackberry. Full-bodied, with very round, soft tannins and a long, rich, fruity finish. Beautiful. Best after 2016. 8,330 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Chateau d'Aiguilhe 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 95 Very intense and powerful, with blackberry and chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, with fabulous velvety tannins and a long, long finish. This coats every inch of the palate. Gorgeous and stylish. Best after 2017. Wine Advocate Review Rated 94 For opulence, decadence, and sexiness, this 2005 is hard to resist.
