Château d’Aiguilhe 2016 – Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux

The nose is aromatic, fresh and gourmand. It reveals notes of blackberry and slight notes of flowers/violet associated with slight hints of blueberry, juicy red fruits, a woody hint, a discreet hint of mocha as well as a subtle hint of minerality (limestone), coffee and sweet spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, nicely fresh and offers juiciness, roundness, a nice fruity expression as well as gourmandise. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of crunchy Gariguette strawberry associated with slight mineral notes (limestone/terroir), slight/discreet hints of fresh raspberry, hints of mocha as well as a discreet hint of flowers and a subtle hint of caramelized oak. Nice and gourmande persistance.
