A Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel, Chateau d’Arsac is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, 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, Chateau d'Arsac stands out for its cellar draped in stainless steel, a glass roof with raw materials and its Klein blue color. The estate also hosts numerous artistic exhibitions in its Contemporary Art Sculpture Garden. The renowned wines of Chateau d'Arsac are produced under the Margaux appellation.
The Chateau 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.
Thermoregulated stainless steel tanks, for an average of 21 days.
100% in oak barrels (40% new barrels, 60% barrels of 1 previous wine).
72% Cabernet sauvignon, 28% merlot.
Tasted as a wine future, the Cru Bourgeois Exceptional Chateau d´Arsac 2019 reveals a shimmering purple-red color 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-Medoc through delicious black fruit flavors and fine tannins which continue into a long finish.
