94 Points - Wine Spectator
"Well-formed and integrated already, with a fleshy edge and good energy throughout. Features plum, anise and blackberry fruit, accented by a streak of bramble. A tasty wine in the making."

92 Points - James Suckling
"Dense and silky with a polished and refined tannin backbone. Medium body, beautiful fruit and a soft-textured finish."

92 Points - Vinous/Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 d'Aiguilhe is gorgeous. A rush of cherry, red plum, espresso, sweet spice and flowers makes a strong first impression. Plump, juicy and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2016 hits all the right notes. This succulent, inviting wine is a terrific effort from Stephan von Neipperg and his team. Tasted two times."

92 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Chateau d'Aiguilhe is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc picked from 30 September until 18 October, matured in 30% new oak. It has a warm and sensual bouquet: small macerated black cherries, blueberry and sloes, a light floral tincture emerging with time. This has a little more strictness compared to the 2015 last year. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and good body. Sappy black fruit, a touch of spice towards the finish, and you have yourself a very fine Côtes de Castillon."

91 Points - Decanter
"This takes its time to open in the glass, slowly revealing its flavours one at a time, starting with tight, dark-fleshed brambly fruits and chocolate. Polished, glossy and vibrant."
