Domaine de L'Aurage 2007
A well-balanced, expressive Côtes de Castillon. A Merlot based wine from an undervalued region bordering St Emillion.
Plum-ruby in colour, Louis, in true Mitjavile style, does not make a second wine so this is a true expression of the vintage, as translated by this property. The nose and palate present layered fruit, punctuated by dark chocolate notes and mocha cream, headily spiced. Although very accessible now, this clearly has the capacity to age
Merlot blend, 2007, Dry, Full bodied, 13.5%, Cork
David Williams, The Observer (November 2010)
Score 90/100. "From the property formerly known as Ch�teau Cadet until purchased by Louis Mitjavile, this has a sweet fruit mintiness with cedar and woodsmoke coming through, and real brightness and raciness to the wine. The palate too has lovely poise and balance, crying out for a chunk of crumbly cheddar or slice of rare roast beef."
