This wine is soft, open and full of fruit. It has a tang of acidity as well as rich berry flavors and a supporting layer of tannin. Fine, smoky and structured, it will be easy to drink from 2019. (RV)
The 2015 d'Arce is an attractive, forward wine to drink now and over the next few years. Succulent red cherry, tobacco, mint, spice and dried flowers add shades of nuance to this very pretty, understated Côtes de Castillon. Silky tannins and midweight structure add to the wine's immediacy and appeal. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. (AG)
Marked by a plush, light toasty frame around a core of plum and raspberry coulis flavors, this should be an open and inviting wine in bottle. Shows solid depth through the finish. (JM, Web Only-2016)
A ripe and juicy red with plum and berry character. Some spices. Full-bodied, round, soft and juicy. Drink now or hold.
The 2015 Château d'Arce is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and it was picked earlier than usual, at the end of September, in order to preserve the Merlot aromas. No SO2 was used apart from two grams just after the malolactic, using CO2 to preserve the wine. It has a plush cranberry, black cherry and licorice scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, caressing in the mouth, hints of cedar and bay leaf, gentle and elegant with a sustained, light grip on the finish. This is very fine and elegant. Tasted twice with consistent notes. (NM)
