2019 Clos Puy Arnaud  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90
A bit reserved, so it will take a few years in the cellar or decanting to bring out its character. When that happens you will find load of fresh, soft, mineral driven red fruits, herbs and licorice to accompany all the sweet red berries. More stoic than showy, give this a few years of aging before popping a cork. Drink from 2022-2033.

Medium-bodied, this is on the fresh, floral, red plum and cherry side of the style range and should be ready to drink on release.

2010 Clos Puy Arnaud  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 89
Ripe spicy berries are led by fresh, black raspberries, jam, earth, licorice and a touch of espresso bean. Deep in color, young and fresh, this blend 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon should be better with a few years in the bottle.

2009 Clos Puy Arnaud  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 90
A nice Bordeaux value wine here, with its forward style, round, soft, polished textures and licorice, ripe black cherry and truffle personality. The wine was made from a blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine reached 15% alcohol, yet there is no sensation of heat.

2008 Clos Puy Arnaud  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 89
Medium bodied, fully mature, with a floral, earthy, thyme and red plum nose, the wine has soft textures, coupled with a bite from the acidity, that gives this wine a lot of lift. There is no sense in aging this any longer.

2005 Clos Puy Arnaud  (Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux) 88
Medium bodied, fully mature, with good freshness to the fruit, the wine has a fine, sweet, plum, licorice and black cherry character, with the right amount of earthy, secondary notes. But its lack of density and fruit is also apparent. Popped and poured, the wine was made from a blend of 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
