My first wine memory
A Sunday lunch where my grandfather made me discover the taste and the magic of the wine

One word to describe my wine
Refined

The history of the Château
Château d’ Arsac is one of the oldest in Médoc. During the “One hundred year war”, Arsac’s Lords made an alliance with King of England. During the French Revolution, the Château will be destroyed and rebuilt with its actual winery in 1830. At the end of 19th century, Château d’Arsac’s vineyard is the biggest in Médoc, but the phylloxera’ s crisis and the price-cutting of the wine encouraged the totally pulling-up of the vineyard by the owners, so it’s why Château d’ Arsac not integrated in the creation of Margaux AOC, in 1954. Since November 1995, with the owner’s tenacity, Château d’Arsac has recovered a part of its vineyard in Margaux AOC. Now, from September 2007, new Margaux AOC limits include about 54 ha on the 112 which contains Château d’Arsac Wineyard.
