Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with bright red highlights. Open, woody nose with notes of red fruit coulis, toasted wood and candied pepper, hints of mocha and peppermint. Fairly firm attack, with fairly square tannins. Medium persistence on pepper and toasted wood.

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Established by the Templar order in the 14th century, Château d'Arcins is today one of the oldest estates in the Haut-Médoc.
Domain and appellation
From the vineyard to the cellar, the estate has been entirely renovated since it was bought by the Castel family in 1971. The 100-hectare estate extends over a soil of gravel and sand, as well as limestone and clay. It benefits from exceptional climatic and geological conditions. The vineyard is mainly composed of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Great care is taken in the vineyard with disbudding, leaf removal and green harvesting. The planting density is high with 9000 vines per hectare. The vines are between 20 and 25 years old on average. Harvesting is mechanical.
