François Mitjavile who started his career at Château Figeac owns 4 vineyards in different AOC's around Bordeaux. With his daughter, Nina and his son, Loulou they share a very personal vision of wine, and winemaking. These wines have an inimitable personality - something you cannot feel in any other Bordeaux wine - a Burgundy style - according to some wine critics.
Even better, the 2016 Domaine de L'Aurage shows slightly better oak integration than the 2015 as well as a more classic feel in its medium to full body, seamless texture, loads of blue fruits, and complex notes of toasted bread, graphite, and spice. It’s another awesome wine from the Mitjavile family that’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 15-20 years.
