Saturated red. Cherry-vanilla, cassis and violet on the nose. Juicy and sweet, offering creamy red cherry and blackcurrant flavors and a repeating note of vanilla. The finish lingers with a spicy floral note. This graceful, balanced wine will offer early accessibility but has the stuffing to age well too.

Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux 2010 tasting. The nose on the L’Arrosee is more reticent than its peers; yet well-defined and terroir-driven, unfurling in the glass with mineral-rich black and red fruit intermingled. The palate has a structured, mineral-driven entry with very well judged acidity. There is a lovely core of black tobacco-infused fruit and a very composed, complex finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2014.
