The elegance of a fruity and structured Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel from Haut-Médoc

The estate
A Classé Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel, Château d’Arsac is one of the oldest estates in the Médoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Owned by Philippe Raoux since 1986, the property has undergone a bold and original renovation. In a resolutely contemporary spirit, Château d'Arsac stands out for its cellar draped in stainless steel, a glass roof with raw materials and its Klein blue colour. The estate also hosts numerous artistic exhibitions in its Contemporary Art Sculpture Garden. The renowned wines of Château d'Arsac are produced under the Margaux and Haut-Médoc appellations.

The vineyard
The Château d'Arsac vineyard covers 53 hectares of vines aged 27 years on average and planted in deep gravel soils upon brown soils and outcrops of marl-limestone. The vines are cultivated with practices of sustainable viticulture, with the implementation of a zero residue policy since 2016. The vine rows are grassed and each vine stock is subject to constant monitoring.

The winemaking
Thermoregulated stainless steel tanks, for an average of 21 days.

The ageing
100% in oak barrels (40% new barrels, 60% barrels of 1 previous wine).

The blend
72% Cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot.

Tasting
Tasted en primeur, the Cru Bourgeois Exceptional Château d´Arsac 2019 reveals a shimmering purple-red colour with purple reflections. The nose combines notes of fruit enhanced by discreet woody and toasted notes. On the palate, this wine presents the structure typical of the fine wines of Haut-Médoc through delicious black fruit flavours and fine tannins which continue into a long finish.
