Description

“The Château d’Arce 2014 has a floral, feminine bouquet with pure cassis and blueberry scents that are nicely integrated with the wood. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannin and well-judged acidity. This feels harmonious in the mouth, very smooth and it just glides to a sensual finish. This is a strong debut wine from the owners of Clos l’Eglise and Barde-Haut – in fact, this may actually rank alongside the former, if not quite the superb latter.” Neal Martin for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. (4.15)

“Very pretty and floral with blueberries and blackberries. Medium body and firm and silky tannins. Delicious finish. Drink now.” James Suckling (2/2017)

“Taking its name from the Chevaliers d’Arce who guarded this land in the 12th and 13th centuries, the small property is now under the watchful eye of Hélène Garcin & Patrice Lévêque. This wine is still young and just balancing out. Firm tannins are shot through with ripe berry fruits and with crisp acidity. It is a wine that will mature well, so drink from 2019 and consider this property a rising star.” Wine Enthusiast. (12/2016)

“The 2014 d’Arce is soft, pliant and fruity, all qualities that are best enjoyed sooner rather than later. The flavors are bright, nuanced and nicely articulated. Sweet red cherry, kirsch and sweet floral notes abound in this attractive, giving Côtes de Castillon from the Garcin family. Antonio Galloni  (2/17)

“This shows a bright tobacco note out front, followed by a mix of red currant, cherry and plum notes. Has a rounded edge but maintains good energy, with a savory detail chiming in on the finish. This has filled out nicely since the barrel tasting. Drink now through 2021.” Wine Spectator (2017)
