One of the two prestigious cuvées of the domain: concentrated and elegant with a delightful freshness. Cellar this wine for some years. More info
Côte Dorée is one of the domain's cuvée prestige, produced from 60-year-old Syrah, whose berries are picked when very ripe. They go through a long and rigorous vinification process that lasts a month. This, and its 10-month élevage in new oak barrels make for a wine with a great potential for aging. Whilst rich and concentrated, its aromas develop with elegance, unveiling a bouquet of chocolate and tobacco. Its freshness balances out supple tannins and complexity of flavor.
Planted on the superb terroir of Montpeyroux, the domain was created by Aimé Commeyras, who comes for an old family of winemakers, and by Dr Pierre-Louis Teissedre, professor of enology at Bordeaux University. Today, the estate is managed by his brother Auguste Commeyras. He and his team produce two aromatic, delicious red wines: Côte Dorée and Côte Rousse. Produced from an austere terroir of limestone scree, Aiguelière's wines combine the flavours of Mediterranean grape varieties with tried and tested vinification methods. Cuvée Prince Pégase is only produced in certain years and is made entirely from Cabernet Sauvignon.
