  • Bronze, Concours de Bordeaux Vins d'Aquitaine, 2020

The Cru Bourgeois of the Haut Médoc are an extremely interesting proposition. Quality wise, they can very nearly match the Haut Medoc's Crus Classés. Price wise, however, they do not. Stylish d’Aurilhac, now nicely mature, is among our favourites.

Château d’Aurilhac is tucked away in Saint Seurin de Cadourne, close to where the Haut Médoc meets the Médoc, just beyond Saint Estèphe. Its near neighbour is the renowned Château Sociando Mallet. From d'Aurilhac's vineyards, you look down to the Gironde and this proximity to the estuary helps provide a superb microclimate for its vines. In 1983, its vineyards were replanted with new rootstocks, better suited to the local conditions, and quality improved almost immediately. Today, under the management of Eric Nieuwaal, the mature vines produce grapes of the highest order. Aged a year in oak, this 10 year old shows mature fruit and spice box character. Stand upright for a few hours so any sediment drops to the bottom, then pour carefully.

"With a medal won just in 2020, this mature 2011 Haut Médoc Cru Bourgeois is still on top form" Jean-Marc Sauboua
