Château d’Aurilhac

In the very north of the Médoc, some four or five kilometres in from the Gironde estuary you will find Château d’Aurilhac in the commune of Château Saint-Seurin de Cadourne. The 21-hectare estate is managed by Dutchman Eric Nieuwaal who bought it in 1983 and immediately set about refurbishing by replanting the entire vineyard on rootstocks more suited to the clay, sand and gravel terroir.

Plantings are 50% cabernet sauvignon, 44% merlot, and 3% each of cabernet franc and petit verdot. On arrival at the winery all the fruit is sorted by hand before vinification in stainless=steel tanks and once fermented spends a year in oak before bottling. He has also introduced a second wine, Château La Fagotte.
