This region consists of limestone plateaux at around 100m above sea level, hence its name "Bordeaux's high country". Wines of the Bordeaux Supérieur appellation are produced the vineyard zone of the Gironde. The wines must conform to rigorous quality criteria and are made from grapes from selected vineyard parcels and older vines. The red Bordeaux Supérieur is characterised by great aromatic complexity combining ripe fruits, floral aromas, spice and often a hint of oak.

Cours Xavier Arnozan is the historic and strategic home of Bordeaux wine merchants. Linking the centre of Bordeaux with the quai des Chartrons, an important commercial port in the 17th century, merchants based themselves here to export to many foreign countries where the wines of Bordeaux were already appreciated. Discover the world of Arnozan through its complete palate of appellations: Bordeauxc dry white, Bordeaux rosé, Bordeaux red, Bordeaux supérieur, Côtes de Bergerac moelleux (sweet), Médoc, Saint-Estèphe, Lussac Saint-Emilion... and now the red and white Bordeaux Esprit d'Arnozan.

grape varieties

60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet sauvignon, 10% Cabernet franc

winemaking and ageing

Destemming and crushing of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature with selected yeasts and maceration of the skins. It takes around 3 weeks to obtain a rounded wine with good structure. Part of the blend (about 20 to 30%) is aged in oak to add complexity to the wine's aromas without excessive oakiness.

food pairings

Serve at between 16 and 18°C with meat and cheeses.

tasting

Intense, dark red colour. Quite intense ripe fruit on the nose with vanilla and coffee. Full on the palate, tannic, round, with well-balanced fruit and oak aromas. Evident oak in balance with the ripe fruit. In the modern style.
