Description

A fruity and elegant Margaux wine

The estate

Classified as an Exceptional Cru Bourgeois, Château d'Arsac is one of the oldest crus in the Médoc region, situatued on the left bank of Bordeaux. Owned by Philippe Raoux since 1986, the estate has undergone a bold and original renovation. In a resolutely contemporary style, Château d'Arsac stands out due to its stainless steel cellar, its glass roof made from raw materials and its Klein blue colour. The estate also hosts numerous art exhibitions in its sculpture garden, a peaceful place filled with contemporary works of art.

The vineyard

Poised on 53.043 hectares of land, Château d'Arsac’s vineyards produce fine Margaux wines. The vines are 29 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel soils, resting on brown soils and marl-limestone outcrops. The vineyard is cultivated in a sustainable manner, the Zero Pesticide Residue has been implemented since 2016. Inter-row grass cover-cropping is carried out in the vines  and each vine is monitored at all times.

The vintage

Although the 2021 vintage began with an early budbreak, the vineyard was evenly affected by the frost. The heavy rainfall recorded in May and June led to strong mildew pressure. Flowering took place under favourable conditions. The mild weather during August and September, perfect for the development of phenolic ripeness, was offset by cool temperatures which delayed the veraison period and thus, reduced the grapes' sugar concentration. The grapes harvested boast a high quality and have a beautiful fruity expression.

Vinification and ageing

A classic vinification process, with gentle extraction in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. Separation of the presses during pressing. The wine is aged exclusively in barrels (60% new barrels, 40% second fill barrels).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (72%)

Merlot (28%).
