Tasted out of bottle, the 2016 Château d'Arce offers a beautiful bouquet of black raspberries, crushed rocks, licorice, and spice. It's slightly deeper and more concentrated than the 2015, with more tannins and acidity, it's a pure, elegant, gorgeous red that more than overdelivers.
A linear and firm young red with chalk, dark-berry and crushed-stone character. Medium to light body, firm tannins and a racy finish.
The 2016 D'Arce, the Côtes de Castillon from the Garçin-Leveque family, is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc fermented in mostly concrete vats and matured in 300-liter new barrels. It has around 13.8% alcohol. It has a well-defined bouquet with a noticeable marine influence that influences the blackberry and briary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate depth, very elegant with a very precise, quite minerally finish. This is a splendid follow-up to the 2015 D'Arce, a Côtes de Castillon that just says 'Enjoy me.' And there is nothing wrong with that. (NM)
The 2016 d'Arce is a soft, floral Côtes de Castillon from Hélène Garcin and Patrice Lévêque. Soft, floral and fruity, with lovely red/purplish berry fruit, the 2016 will drink well upon release and for at least a handful of years thereafter. (AG)
Fresh and pure, offering a tightly focused beam of raspberry coulis and cassis notes, with light anise and floral accents along the edges. A pretty mineral twinge adds cut on the finish. Not big, but very pure and nicely rendered. Drink now through 2027. (JM)
