Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% MerlotThe Barrel Sample for this wine is under 14% ABV. The estate, dating to the 16th century and now home of an impressive modern sculpture collection, has produced a beautifully balanced wine. Acidity goes with black-currant fruits that have been smoothed by wood aging. Developing into an elegant wine, it will be ready from 2026. Editors’ Choice The 2019 d’Arsac has a very Margaux-like bouquet with crushed violet and potpourri bursting from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with very lithe tannins, well judged acidity, tobacco and minty notes infusing the black fruit towards the finish. Probably early drinking but nicely made. – Neal Martin Barrel Sample:90-92 Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2019 D’Arsac leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of crushed red and black currants, fresh blackberries and black raspberries with hints of rose hip tea, bouquet garni and underbrush. The medium-bodied palate has a firm line of grainy tannins and loads of freshness supporting the bright, crunchy black fruits, finishing with an herbal lift. Barrel Sample:89-91
