Chateau d’Arche 2000

Chateau d'Arche 2009 En Primeur Sauternes

Chateau d’Arche – 2nd Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: In 2000 the 1st pick became the total crop, producing lighter wines than usual but tremendously fresh and tensile, and composed of a greater proportion of Sauvignon. I love this d’Arche exactly for that reason. This is a château that naturally produces fat-styled wines, yet here we have a wine that is the most vibrant they have ever produced. Tangy, oaky (all that new oak had to be used) and very fine..
