Château d'Aiguilhe Red Bordeaux Blend Côtes de Castillon Seigneurs d'Aiguilhe 2004
Tasting Notes :A brilliant achievement for proprietor Stefan von Neipperg, this blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an exuberant, cedary bouquet revealing scents of espresso roast, chocolate, pain grille, and sweet red and black fruits. Opulent and fleshy for a 2004, this sexy beauty offers plenty of purity, symmetry, and sweet tannin. It will provide enjoyment over the next 10-15 years.
I have the 1999 in the cellar its a 93/100. The 2000 was veritable cats p**s when i tried it. The 2004 is best described as average. Its a 86/100 rating. The nose is musty but then herbaceous to be provocative, the front is a little flat but it then opens to tobacco, juniperberry, aniseed and blackberry notes with a mild coffee finish, although not too long. Kind of like a low fat Greek wedding ... Enjoy with cheese, meats, chicken and the in-laws - nice but not close to orgiasmic. Maybe next year will be a 1999 repeat.
