2018 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 87

Light in color, the wine offers sweet, citrus and yellow tropical fruits with a touch of honey, but without much depth of flavor. This lighter-styled sweet wine would be best served as a chilled aperitif and served on the young side. It can also make a nice pairing with savory dishes during a meal. 87 Points

2016 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 91

On the orange, apricot, floral side of the style range, there is a good degree of sweet, ripe honeyed fruit in the medium/full bodied wine that should make this quite fun to drink on release, yet age well too. 91 Points

2015 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 93

The best wine I have ever tasted here, the wine is richly textured, sweet, lush and most importantly, fresh. All the pineapple, tropical fruit and apricots are coated with sweet honeyed essence. The acidity is just right as well, so everything has lift, energy and more of that delicious, honeyed tropical fruits. 93 Points

2014 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 91

A little more bright, crisp and fresh, than sweet, lush and tropical, the medium bodied wine is a good match for savory courses, as it is not overly sweet. However, you need to be a fan of butterscotch here, because that seems to be the dominant flavor. 91 Points

2013 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 90

Medium bodied, with a strong floral note coexisting with the tropical fruit and honeyed orange rind. Good freshness and sweetness, but not overly concentrated. It's quite charming to drink young. 90 Points

2010 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 87

Very light, this is probably best served as either an aperitif or with select savory courses without a lot of weight. The wine is clean, fresh, slightly honeyed and shows some tropical fruit, honey and vanilla, but it lacks fat and depth. 87 Points

2007 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 90

With an attractive golden color, the wine offers honey covered pineapple, apricot and orange blossom. Medium/full bodied, with freshness and sweet honey coated, tropical fruit, this is drinking beautifully today. 90 Points

2001 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 90

Close to fully mature, the caramel, vanilla and butterscotch on top of the orange, apricot and pineapple was the perfect ending to a warm, summer night. 90 Points

2001 Château d'Arche  (Sauternes) 90

One of the best deals in Sauternes, this sweet wine delivers a lot of bang for the buck with its floral, honey coated pineapple, apricot and candied lemon nose. The medium bodied finish combines fresh acidity and sweet, honeyed fruits. This is not going to make old bones. I’d drink it over the next 5-7 years. 90 Points
