Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

Full red-ruby. Sexy aromas of redcurrant, spicecake, tobacco, loam, licorice and minerals. In a distinctly firm, structured style, with juicy acidity intensifying its dark berry and mineral flavors. But there's also good flesh and sweetness over this wine's firm spine. Spreads out nicely on the lingering finish.

About This Producer


A denizen of St. Emilion, the l'Arrosee estate is an oft forgotten (and under-classified) property producing wines of power and fleshiness, uniquely tempered with a fragrant richness and subtle layering quality that creates a lovely, almost Burgundian, muscular elegance. In its beginnings, the estate was run by Pierre Magne, Minister to Napoleon III. For the past five years, the chateau has been run by new proprietors, Roger and Jean-Philippe Caille. The new ownership is undoubtedly the starting point for the rebirth of this St.-Emilion Grand Cru.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend


Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
