Bouteille de vin -

“A” of Château d’Arche is a Bordeaux appellation dry wine produced by Château d’Arche, Grand cru classé de Sauternes in 1855.

 

This wine has a pale, limpid and brilliant colour. The nose is fresh and offers numerous citrus fruits (lemon, citron yellow, grapefruit), passion fruit and floral notes (acacia flower) typical of Semillon. The maturing in barrels brings a light toasty touch which completes the aromatic complexity. On the palate, we find the aromatic freshness on the nose with a nice tension from the attack to the finish, coated by the creaminess brought by the maturing on lees.
