Chateau Le Monteil D'Arsac Haut Medoc 2012 £17.95
The traditional Château d'Arsac, is considered one of the oldest wine estates in the Medoc region, Bordeaux, with more than 900 years of history. In the 16th century, it was acquired by Thomas de Montaigne, brother of the famous philosopher Michel de Montaigne and later became the property of the Barons of Arsac. But it was only after the 18th century that the first merlot and cabernet sauvignon vines were planted in the fields of Château d'Arsac and the elaboration of fine and smooth red wines took over palates and palaces across France and England. After a long period of crisis due to phylloxera and the fall of viticulture in 1986, Château d'Arsac was acquired by Philippe Raoux, current owner since then, that managed to recover the wine region and half of the production of its vineyards is classified today as AOC Margaux.
In one of the oldest Châteaux de Bordeaux, Châteaux D'Arsac, the refinement of this beautiful red from Crus Bourgeois is born.
