Critical Acclaim

"Good ruby-red. Ripe aromas of black cherry, raspberry and licorice, lifted by a note of violet. Juicy and bright, with lovely cut to the black fruit and violet flavors. Finishes with firm but fine tannins. Offers unusual purity and finesse for a Cotes de Castillon wine.

Range: 87-90 Points"
90 Points

"Although the 2005 Clos Puy Arnaud may not be as brilliant as the 2001, it is still a terrific wine. Revealing plenty of crushed rock/mineral characteristics along with hints of black cherries, intense fruit, and a beautiful mouthfeel, this dense ruby/purple-tinged effort should drink well for 7-8 years. 88+"
