Château L'Arrosee is now part of Château Quintus, blended with the formerly known Château Tertre Daugay, also a Classified Growth of Saint-Émilion.  The owners of Château Haut-Brion, one of the five venerable First Growths names, bought the property in 2012 and brought in its management team and practice to remake this wine.  Here is your chance to sample its glory old days before forking over a larger sum for the main label (Château Quintus routinely sells for $125, and the price of Château Haut-Brion can approach $500).

Tasting Notes

"The dense ruby/purple-hued 2010 possesses copious notes of graphite, blueberries and black raspberry liqueur intermixed with subtle smoky oak. A more structured effort than other recent vintages, deep, pure, full-bodied and impressive, this property has regained its momentum over the last 4-5 years, and their 2010 is another powerful yet elegant effort that admirably translates its terroir. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades." - Robert Parker Jr, The Wine Advocate (5/1/2011, Issue 194), Ratings: 91-94, Drink: 2015-2035
