The Chateau d'Arche has an attractive nose with subtle notes of lemon curd almond and pear struck through with impressive delineation and lift. The palate is medium-bodied with good weight and tension fine focus and minerality leading to a fresh vibrant quite floral finish with purity and a decent (although not great) level of botrytis. This is an accomplished Sauternes from an estate that has raised its game in recent vintages. -Neal Martin

Typically a blend of 90% semillon and 10% sauvignon blanc aged in 30% new oak. Planted to gravel and clay-limestone soils. Lemon and a touch of toasted coconut frame the nose with an abundance of underlying botrytis... Typically a blend of 90% semillon and 10% sauvignon blanc aged in 30% new oak. Planted to gravel and clay-limestone soils. Lemon and a touch of toasted coconut frame the nose with an abundance of underlying botrytis spice. Fat and rich the palate is dominated by spicy botrytis followed by clove and cardamom along with moderate sweetness tucked beneath brilliant acids and creamy citrus. The acids carry the fruit through a moderate finish in which the sweetness gently fades.
