Tonight I have opened the 2018 Château D'Aiguilhe Comtes von Neipperg. From Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux on the Right Bank. Blend of 80%Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
On the nose is black cherry, black plum, black raspberry, green bell pepper, black olive, herbaceous notes, mocha and cedar.
On the palate there is black cherry, black raspberry, plum, black currant, green bell pepper, herbs and cedar.
A beautiful medium to full bodied wine with a silky and succulent mouthfeel with medium + acidity and medium + fine tannins that has a long dark black and blue fruit finish. The weekend has started and everyone seems, from what I see, feels this pandemic is finally over. Please continue to be careful out there and stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 13 days ago
2020 primeur. Purplish colour, good fruit concentration and ripe tannin. — 14 days ago
Drank 5/22/21. First of recent 6 bottle purchase.
Nose of plum. Baking spice, earth and black cherry. Flavors are well balanced, with black fruits, earth, tobacco, and a hint of spice. Medium plus finish. Quite enjoyable now, but should coast for the next 5-10 years.

Luscious deep berry and leather. Super good. — 5 days ago
I love this easy drinking wine. Great flavor profile that drinks more expensive than it is. Inky, full-bodied red with aroma of black fruit, green pepper, spice and cedar. Soft on the tongue at first with a high tannic finish that balances the overall structure. Really satisfied with this easy purchase. — 3 days ago

With Jancis Robinson’s 16/20, James Suckling’s 91 - and “drink or hold ” until 2022 recommendations, my choice was to uncork the bottle now and no regrets whatsoever - my best Blaye so far. — 22 days ago
