Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine De L'aurage Cotes De Castillon 2016

Rated 94 by Jeb Dunnuck
Even better, the 2016 Domaine de L'Aurage shows slightly better oak integration than the 2015 as well as a more classic feel in its medium to full body, seamless texture, loads of blue fruits, and complex notes of toasted bread, graphite, and spice. It’s another awesome wine from the Mitjavile family that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15-20 years.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2016 Domaine de l'Aurage, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, offers plenty of red cherry and strawberry fruit on the nose, with the oak nicely integrated. It is actually quite Burgundy-like in style. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, plenty of confit-like fruit with a gentle grip on the finish. Enjoy this lovely Côtes de Castillon from the Mitjavile family over the next 5-7 years.

Winery Domaine De L'aurage

Region: Bordeaux

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
