CHÂTEAU ARNAULD 2018

CHÂTEAU ARNAULD Haut Médoc

2018
Changer de millésime

Dégustation

Dark and deep colour with nice purple reflections. Aromas of ripe, fresh black fruit (blackberry - blackcurrant - blueberry) dominate with a rarely achieved intensity. The texture is creamily smooth with a perfectly integrated tannic structure. Smooth and silky finish of very nice length. It has the indulgence and generosity of the 2009 vintage without having its exuberance and it has the tannic dimension of the 2010 and its minerality without having its austerity. We can dream of its future in bottle!

Appellation :

Haut Médoc - Cru Bourgeois

Couleur :

Red

Température de service :

18°c

Terroir :

17,95 hectares of vines SOIL : a deep layer of Quaternary Gunzian gravel on the Lamarque plateau AVERAGE AGE OF VINES : 40 years old PLANTING DENSITY : 10 000 vines per hectare

Climat :

After a very wet first six months (rainfall up 40% on the thirty-year average), without sun (a record in Bordeaux for the lowest sunshine), which set back bud burst and flowering by around a week, we then moved to a completely opposite climate with barely 60mm of rain in July, August and September, temperatures 2.3°C higher than the thirty-year average, and a temperature sum up 10% just before the start of harvest. The first consequence of these very wet first six months was pressure from mildew of an intensity never before seen in our latitudes and significant crop losses of up to 90%, especially in the area from southern Pauillac down to Bordeaux. The second consequence of the three-month drought that preceded the harvest was a strong reduction in the berry weight and juice volume, as much as a 30% loss in the gravel and sandy-gravel areas.
