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.
Domaine de L'Aurage blends a selection of parcels aged 18 months in 80% new barrels. It offers powerful aromas of mocha, cherry and roast. The tactile impression on the palate is fine, smooth and the wine has a long and suave stretch with superb balance.
