The tannins in this are fine and super polished with beautiful blueberry, raspberry and citrus undertones. Medium-to full-bodied. Very integrated tannins.

The 2018 d'Arce is soft, succulent and expressive, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Ripe red cherry, plum, rose petal, and spice are all perked up by naturally bright acids from the limestone-rich soils on the Castillon plateau. This is a gorgeous Côtes de Castillon, and an early candidate for one of the best values of the vintage. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.

Slightly high-pitched, with red currant and damson plum notes, laced with violet and mineral details. Offers a focused, racy finish. A very pure style.

Pourpre violacé. Bouquet intense, complexe, marqué par des notes de cassis, de mûres et de réglisse. Touche de sureau. En attaque, le vin est friand et dense. Belle expression aromatique en bouche, suivie de tannins aux grains fins, parfaitement intégrés. Finalement, la structure confère une belle race en fin de bouche. Seule la finale peine à révéler du fruit, mais au vu de la substance présente, ceci est juste une question de temps.

Rocking stuff, the 2018 Château D'Arce comes from the Castillon region and is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc brought up in 30% new oak. Deeply colored, with beautiful depth of fruit, lots of minerality and spice, full body, moderate acidity, and ripe, present tannins, it's up with the crème de la crème of the appellation.

This is a final blend composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, harvested October 3-9. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 D'Arce gives up gregarious notes of blackberry preserves, mulberries and plum pudding with hints of Chinese five spice, molten licorice and cloves. Full, rich and seductively plush, with a wicked backbone of freshness supporting the generous fruit, it finishes long and spicy.

Couleur sombre et intense. Nez d'intensité moyenne, au fruité solaire, avec une note de framboise. Bouche suave, parfumée, savoureuse, qui fond en finale sur des tannins présents, mais enrobés. Bonne longueur.
