Chateau D’aiguilhe ‘comtes de neipperg’ 2002 (Review)

85 points

Côtes de Castillon, Bordeaux. 14%

Dark colour. Rich, open knit nose. Big attractive wine without intensity or verve. Lacking mid palate strength or intensity. The sort of wine that gets attention (for its appellation) – well done, but not fine wine. Good if you can get it cheap. Drink now to 3 years – attractive non-cerebral claret.

  1. 2nd bottle – big vegetal nose. Seems like a pretty extracted wine, with considerable bitterness and some green 2002 characters. All in all not very pleasant now. Really 14% alcohol in 2002 !
