Aiguilhe is now a large vineyard of some 90 hectares. Vines have been cultivated here since the 18th century, but the estate rose to prominence after its purchase in 1989 by Count Stefan von Niepperg. The count completely renovated the estate, replanting the vineyard and building a new winery. Von Niepperg also owns St Emilion châteaux Canon La Gaffelière, Clos de l'Oratoire, La Mondotte and Clos Marsalette in Pessac-Léognan.

"The 2012 d'Aiguilhe is marked by super-distinctive notes of blood orange, cranberry and white pepper, all of which give the wine considerable energy. The flavors are bright and focused throughout." Antonio Galloni
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
