Description

The Château d'Arsac is one of the oldest domains of the Medoc. The history of the Hundred Years' War reports that the Lords of Arsac allied themselves with the King of England. Land of history, this chateau sees the union of Jacquette and Marguerite d'Arsac with respectively Etienne de la Boétie and Thomas de Montaigne, the friend and the brother of Michel de Montaigne. Original destroyed during the revolution, the building was completely rebuilt in 1830. At the end of the 19th century, Arsac was the largest vineyard in the Médoc, but the phylloxera crisis was responsible for its decline.
Arsac is recognisable to its fruity nose, which leads to a quite frank and often fresh palate, which has a fruity aftertaste. Red fruit flavours or a little toast taste can be noticed.
