TASTING NOTES

"The 2016 Domaine de l’Aurage is the recently introduced Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux by Louis Mitjavile, son of François Mitjavile of Tertre-Rôteboeuf. It has a pure, seductive bouquet of strawberry pastille, morello cherries and touches of blood orange and crème de cassis. The medium-bodied palate is well balanced and offers supple tannin, a judicious sprinkling of white pepper and oregano and a feisty, joyful finish that exudes energy. There is a straightforwardness to this L’Aurage that I like. A wine determined to give pleasure." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Dark crimson. Dark and charry on the nose with spice and vanilla but the sweet cassis fruit still shines and they are totally entangled, and even a touch floral, and a very strong oak charry toast on the palate. Plenty of spice but you can see the dark fruit. Clearly embryonic but you can see the depth and potential." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
