Château | Acquired by Stephan von Neipperg at the end of 1998, Château d'Aiguilhe embodies one of the most beautiful vineyards of the Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux.
The Château d'Aiguilhe currently extends over 140 hectares, 90 of which are entirely devoted to the cultivation of vines. For many years, the château has practiced biodynamic agriculture without even having obtained certification. Within the vineyard, the most present grape variety is Merlot at 80%, there is also Cabernet Sauvignon at 20%. The vines are planted on a clay-limestone and clay-loam plateau. The particularity of this type allows the vine to be provided with good water regulation.
