Château Arnauld

Tasting

Deep ruby colour, still young, sparkling clarity. Nose of fresh Morello cherries, wild raspberries and red currant underlined by some liquorice notes. Delicate and caressing on the palate with tannins that remain tight at the finish. A nice package, upright and classy.
To be decanted 1 hour before tasting
Enjoy from now until 2020-2025
