Tasting Notes

The d'Aiguilhe 2010 has an endearing, very pure bouquet with lifted dark cherry, blueberry and crushed violets scents that open nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, nicely judged acidity and a plush yet controlled finish that is delightful and harmonious. This deserves a light round of applause.

Score: 91

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate, 01 January 2014

Very lush and expressive, with caressing plum sauce, mulled blueberry and blackberry fruit and melted licorice and warm fruitcake flavors, all gliding together through the finish. Offers lovely range and a seductive mouthfeel.

Score: 92

From the brilliant proprietor Stephan von Neipperg, the 2010, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that hit 15% natural alcohol, is ripe and intense but exhibits good minerality and freshness as well as lots of blueberry and blackberry fruit, with hints of charcoal, licorice and asphalt. Rich and full-bodied, with no hard edges, this wine should drink beautifully for 10 or more years.
