Château Arnauton enjoys a unique and remarkable terroir, located on the southern slopes of the mound of the Château which dominates the entire Fronsac appellation. Benefitting from a unique clay and limestone soil, the wines of Chateau Arnauton are full bodied, elegant and have a subtle complexity achieved through ageing in French oak barrels for 12 months.
This wine is mature and elegant with velvety, dark plum aromas and flavours with a hint of coffee and dark chocolate. The palate is smooth with soft tannins and good length. Good acidity and fine balance. It has the subtle complexity and elegance that is appropriate for a mature wine. Pairs well with soft cheeses (eg Camembert, Brie etc), game and red meats (beef, lamb, veal).
We like this because it is rare to find such a good quality Bordeaux at this price point which is also mature and ready to drink.
