Chateau Arnauld is an exceptional wine from an exceptional terroir.  Between Margaux and Moulis, this property is situated on one of the most select gravel outcrops on the edge of the Gironde river, a situation which has also made the reputation of its neighbours, Chateau Chasse Spleen and Chateau Poujeaux.
