L’Aurage is a Merlot from the Côtes de Castillon. Bordering Saint-Émilion, this region represents an incredible value proposition for Bordeaux. Opulent and seductive, the wine is deep crimson in the glass. A beguiling sweet, peppery nose meets a palate rich with aromatics. You’ll taste red fruit, sweet cherries, and pudding spice, all wrapped up with silky mouthfeel and rounded texture.
Those with a passion for Bordeaux are likely to know the name ‘Mitjaville’. The family owns two other renowned Bordeaux Château–Tertre-Roteboeuf Saint-Émilion and Roc de Cambes in the Côtes de Bourgin. Current patriarch Louis Mitjaville inherited his title from father François, who launched his career when his wife inherited Tertre-Roteboeuf in the 1970s.
"Grip, power, nectarine, citrus, slate, this is an excellent Chevalier white that is clearly going to age extremely well. White flowers play around the edges, but it is the texture that appeals the most, reflecting its cooler terroir that works in hot summers like 2019.
