2009 Clos Puy Arnaud

Average critic rating : 89.5 points



A major sleeper of the vintage, this biodynamically farmed vineyard was cropped at 15 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon. The alcohol scores a natural 15%. This stunning wine, with black/purple color, exhibits notes of blackberry, licorice, incense, forest floor and cedar along with a hint of toasty oak. The wine is opulent, even sumptuous in texture, has stunning purity and a provocative 45+ second finish. This is another over-achieving Castillon that should drink well for at least a decade or more. Wine Advocate.February, 2012



Tasted at a negociant. This has fresh black cherry and cassis notes on the nose that has a touch of warmth from the alcohol. The palate is very ripe, but not over-ripe, fleshy and modern with ripe blackberry and plum, with sufficient freshness on the finish to makes this an attractive Cote de Castillon. Fine. Tasted March 2010.



Intense aromas of crushed blackberries and minerals follow through to a full body, with a solid core of fruit and beautiful tannins. Juicy and succulent. Well done
