CLOS PUY ARNAUD
2010 Côtes de Castillon
|Sub-district||Saint Emilion & Satellites|
|Village||Côtes de Castillon|
Always one of my favorite Cotes de Castillons, this 35 acre vineyard is planted primarily on limestone soils. A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2010 was cropped at 24 hectoliters per hectare, and attained 14.5% natural alcohol. Abundant Rhone-like notes of black raspberry, licorice, garrigue and lavender emerge in the aromatics, but in the mouth, the wine is pure Bordeaux in its rich black currant and black raspberry-like fruit intermixed with subtle oak in the background. This impressively full, rich effort is capable of lasting 7-10 years. Rating: 90-92 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Jul 2011)
