Tasting notes: "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." Neal Martin

Expert Ratings:  Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 91/100

About the Winery: 

Specialized in Merlot, the Mitjavile family has established itself as a master on the right bank of the Bordeaux vineyard and today best embodies the noble peasant values of French viticulture. Since the mid-1980s, the Mitjaviles have revolutionized the image of the great Saint-Emilions. François Mitjavile already had a glorious past since he worked as a winemaker with Thierry Manoncourt of Chateau Figeac.

It was in 2007, after years of consulting on different properties around the world, that Caroline and Louis Mitjawile decided to acquire their property. After many unsuccessful visits, they fell in love with "Chateau Cadet", which they renamed L'Aurage in 2009. Their desire was to find a vineyard on the right bank, but without being in Saint Emilion, where the Mitjavile family is already established, with notably Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf, the property of François and Emilie Mitjavile, Louis' parents. L'Aurage, a Côtes de Castillon, hilly, wild, in the extension of the slopes of Saint Emilion, on the clay-limestone line, the estate consists of 22 hectares in one piece. The clay-limestone soils, regulate the hydrous contributions of the vine, avoid the stress of the plant, the vegetative cycle is longer, which makes it possible to obtain generally richer, dense and balanced wines.
