Critic reviews
"The 2016 d’Aiguilhe, bottled in March 2018, is showing some reduction on the nose, although it blows off to reveal black cherries, cassis and hints of date on the nose, plus a bit of black olive lurking in the background. The spicy palate is medium-bodied with firm, grippy tannin. There is impressive energy here, courtesy of the calcaire soils. Well-defined and linear on the finish. A very fine d’Aiguilhe that will reward bottle age."
Neal Martin, December 2018

"The 2016 d'Aiguilhe is absolutely delicious. Succulent, nuanced and inviting, the 2016 has so much to offer. Ripe cherry, plum, French oak, mocha, new leather and spice all flesh out effortlessly. Deep, generous and resonant, the 2016 captures all the best the vintage has to offer. Sweet, silky tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. It would be nice to see a bit less overtness to the oak. The wine really does not need it. In 2016, d'Aiguilhe is very pretty. Tasted two times."
Antonio Galloni, December 2018
