Chateau I'Arrosee has a character with two clearly defined special features. Firstly, the domain is unusual in having two types of land. Part of the vineyard is planted on the sheltered slope to the south west of Saint-Emilion and has the maximum exposure to the sun. This situation is ideal for helping to ensure that the grapes are perfectly mature when they are harvested and the chalky clay soil provides a balanced supply of water and minerals for the vines. The other part of the vineyard lies at the foot of the slope where it is hotter. Having the two types of soil increases the chances of obtaining a very good grape compared with a land with a single type of soil. Another particularity is that the merlot grape variety is blended with 20% cabernet franc and. unusually. 20% cabernet sauvignon. Cabernet sauvignon. the great vine of the Medoc region, is not usually planted on clay soils but grows easily here where it is exposed to full sun. Read less

For L'Arrosee, this vintage has taken an atypically long time to round into shape. It has always possessed considerable power as well as a muscular, concentrated style and hefty tannin. Beginning to shed its tannin, it reveals an intriguing dusty herb, black cherry, kirsch, and mineral-scented nose, with subtle vanillin from new oak in the background. There are medium-bodied, concentrated flavors with some firm tannin, but by and large this is a very accessible wine. It remains youthful, with only a hint of amber at the edge of its deep ruby/purple color. This will undoubtedly be one of L'Arrosee's longest lived wines since their 1961.

St. Emilion Grand Cru with a unique character. 60% merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon, 20% cabernet franc blend from traditionally cultivated vines aged 35 years on average then aged 15 months in new oak. Full-bodied and powerful, it is also rich and harmonious, releasing blackberry and cherry aromas as you savour with fleshy raspberries with an underlying fresh, stimulating acidity. It is improved by decanting and is a superb accompaniment for magret de canard, spicy, roasted pigeon or tournedos Rossini. (Viticulture in transition toward sustainable methods.) Vintage - Right bank fared better than the Left, with well-colored wines and solid tannic structure. A vintage outshone by the Millennium, but

Rich, smooth, deep and complex, with layers of plum, currant, spice and vanilla flavors all woven together with a measure of subtlety and finesse. Firmly tannic and oaky, too, but comes across as soft and fleshy. Drinkable now. 5,000 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1989 Arrosee, L' 750ml
