    Product description

    En Primeur Château d’Aiguilhe will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.

    Acquired by Stephan von Neipperg in late 1998, Château d’Aiguilhe is one of the finest and most beautiful vineyards in the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux appellation. Located back from the river, the château’s dignified ruins bear witness to a long and turbulent history.

    Formerly the heart of a fortified farm, the château dates from the 13th century. Located on the frontier between areas occupied by the French and English during the Hundred Years’ War, the château had a major strategic role and changed allegiance regularly according to the political tendencies of the seigneur.
    Today, the estate covers 140 hectares, including 90 planted with vines. The vines grow exclusively on the plateau, where they benefit from south-facing sun exposure and excellent natural drainage. A thin layer of rather meagre clay-limestone and clay-silt topsoil overlays a limestone substratum that ensures remarkable water regulation. Combined with the average age of the vines, this terroir is ideal for producing quality wine. The blend is 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc

    En Primeur pricing is per case as specified and excludes UK duty and VAT, which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond for delivery. Bonded storage is available. Onward delivery or transfer is not included and can be quoted for on request. Free delivery on orders over £100 does not apply to bonded or en primeur wines.
