The wine is a radiant, brilliant yellow colour with an intense bouquet that develops with swirling. You will be captivated by the complexity and subtlety of its youthful, fruity (pineapple, bush peach, apricot, almond) and floral (white flowers) aromas coupled with toasted notes. With a supreme elegance on the palate, Aigle Royal combines remarkable mineral qualities with a subtle buttery texture and an endless finish.

The Domaine de l'Aigle is a 25-hectare estate magnificently located in the northernmost part of the Haute Vallée de l'Aude winemaking region, ranging between 250 and 500 meters above sea level. Here we grow Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes of great elegance and finesse.
L’Aigle Royal is a wine produced from the fruit of a plot of Pinot Noir vines in the highest reaches of the estate, rooted in clay-limestone soil and facing directly south.
