Tasting Notes

Goedhuis, April 2017, Score: 90-92

Always a good buy at the price. This has many admirable qualities: orange blossom perfume, tangerine juiciness, rich toasty oak, and nice length. CP

Producer

Château d'Arche

Ch d'Arche is a second growth Sauternes and the vineyards are close to the village of Sauternes itself, not far from La Tour Blanche, Guiraud and Yquem! Chateau d'Arche produces 90% Semillon and a mere 10% Sauvignon Blanc resulting in a rich, mouth-filling style of wine. The wines are very well mdae and also good value for money.

Region

Sauternes, Sweet Bordeaux

It is not an exaggeration to say that these are the greatest sweet wines in the world. They are the result of a serendipitous marriage of grape variety, location, annual weather conditions and human care and determination. The vineyards are located on the banks of the cool spring-fed Ciron river which, in autumn, flows into the warmer tidal Garonne and creates rolling evening mists which clothe the vines until the afternoon sun burns them off the following day. This cycle creates perfect conditions for the development of botrytis cinerea or noble rot, and the resulting grape juice is a super concentrated sweet, ambrosial nectar which makes the most heavenly and complex wines with extraordinary ability to age. In 1855 the wines were classified into first and second growths, with Ch d'Yquem rightly receivingits own super status of premier grand cru. Other stunning wines include Chx Sudiraut, Rieussec, Coutet and Climens. While seductively fragrant and sweet when young, if you can bear to wait, you will be amply rewarded with lusciously rich, exotically complex wine.
