2012 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

The final vintage for this wine, before it was integrated into Quintus is a beauty. Elegant, medium bodied, fresh, lively, sweet, earthy, red plums, cherry and floral tones, with a light of oak, that will continue receding as the wine ages. Another 4-5 years will add a lot here. The wine was produced from blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. 91 Points

2011 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Blending 53% Merlot, 24% Cabernet Franc and a high percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon (for St. Emilion) at 23%, the wine reached 13.5% alcohol and will be aged in 100% new oak. Smoke, earth and sweet red berry aromas create the perfume. Delicate, but not light, the wine is round, sweet and filled with ripe kirsch. 91-93 Pts

2010 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Clearly on the light, elegant, fresh side of the style range, the wine offers floral, cherry and spice, with refined textures and a soft, forward personality. I'd drink this in the first 10-15 years of life. 90 Points

2008 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Medium bodied, soft textured and elegant in character, the wine is filled with ripe red fruits, fresh herbs and spice box characteristics. This is already starting to drink well and is probably a St. Emilion to be consumed on the young side. 90 Points

2005 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Flowers, licorice, black raspberry, spice and earthy with a hint of oak make up a nice perfume. Never the most concentrated St. Emilion, this medium bodied wine is all about finesse and elegance, with soft, supple textures and a long, silky, red and black fruit filled finish. Give it a few more years to develop more aromatic complexity. 92 Points

2000 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 89

Light, bright, fresh red berries, spice and earth make a nice, but short, soft impression. There is not enough there, there for long term aging. 89 Points

1982 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 92

Quite charming, with its fresh, strawberry, floral, black raspberry, cherry and tobacco nose. Medium bodied, with a finesse style, this is fully mature and should be consumed ove the next 3-5 years. 92 Points

1961 Château L'Arrosée  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

From a magnum, this bottle was super. Silky, soft and smooth, with an earthy, floral and sweet cherry character, the wine had freshness, medium body and refined, elegant, refined stylings. 93 Points
