Arche Perlée

Méthode traditionnelle
Brut Blanc de Blancs
Delicate Sparkling wine
Arche Perlée - Chateau d'Arche

Château d’Arche, Grand Cru Classé de Sauternes, has taken advantage of its exceptional terroir to create a wine with very fine bubbles. Some qualitative vines, planted with Semillon and Sauvignon, have been especially driven to produce this sparkling wine. After the second fermentation in bottles and ageing on lath, we added for its disgorgement a dosage liquor based on Château d’Arche, grand cru classé en 1855.

 

This Traditional method, unique by its elaboration, offers a beautiful golden colour. On the palate, its very fin bubbles combine delicate white flower notes and candied fruits aromas which are clearly reminiscent of our great Sauternes.

Bordeaux Rosé
"A" Château d'Arche Rosé

“A” of Château d’Arche is a Bordeaux appellation rosé wine produced by Château d’Arche, Grand cru classé de Sauternes in 1855. It is made from the direct pressing of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon planted on a small, late-slope terroir of Graves, on a silty-gravelly soil with astery-limestone at the top. Fermented in stainless steel vats and then partially matured in Sauternes barrels at Château d’Arche, this dry, fresh and tangy rosé has unique aromatic characteristics.

Blended from 85% Semillon, the emblematic grape variety of Sauternes, and 15% Sauvignon, hand-picked, this wine reflects all the typicity of its terroir.
