Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine De L'aurage Cotes De Castillon 2015

Rated 93 by Jeb Dunnuck
Made by the Mitjavile family of Tertre Rôteboeuf and from the Castillon region, the 2015 Domaine de L'Aurage is primarily Merlot blended with 10% Cabernet Franc that was raised all in new oak. It unquestionably has a ripe, modern style with plenty of oak, yet it displays a stunning perfume of crème de cassis and black raspberries intermixed with spice, white truffle, and flowers. It’s deep, full-bodied, and seamless, with ripe tannins, and is a killer wine that’s going to benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for 15+ years. It’s a gem.
Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 Domaine de L'Aurage, the Côtes de Castillon from Louis Mitjavile, has a fragrant and pure blackberry and wild hedgerow scented nose, not intense but very well defined. The palate is supremely well balanced with fine tannin, a little powdery in texture with a hint of dark chocolate complementing the red berry fruit towards the composed and refined finish. What an absolutely beautiful wine in the making.
