    Château Clos Puy Arnaud

    About Château Clos Puy Arnaud

    Château Clos Puy Arnaud is all about the fourth-generation owner and winemaker, Thierry Valette. Hailing from the aristocratic Valette family that possesses Troplong Mondot, he was previously the owner of Château Pavie.

     

    Forging out on his own after the sale of Pavie, he had long had his eyes on a comparable limestone plateau terroir near St-Émilion. Ever the man of action, Valette acquired Clos Puy Arnaud in 2000.

     

    The Winemaking and the wine

    Driven to produce a perfectly harmonious wine that reflects both the soil and nature, several modifications and improvements have been implemented at the property. Vineyards are tended using strict biodynamic principles, and the entire winemaking process is completed using gravity, indigenous yeast, cold fermentation in cement vats, and gentle extractions.

     

    Made from 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, Clos Puy Arnaud is one of those " benchmark wines " (DC) for judging the success of any vintage in Bordeaux, according to Jane Anson of Decanter.

    Clos Puy Arnaud 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (94)

    The 2019 Clos Puy Arnaud is fabulous, just as it was in barrel. Plush and beautifully layered, with soft contours and silky tannins. Dark fruit, mocha, cloves, licorice, violets and spice all build as this flamboyant Castillon Côtes De Bordeaux opens with a bit of air. In a word: superb.

    Clos Puy Arnaud 2021 (6x75cl)

    Vinous - Neal Martin (86-88)

    The 2021 Clos Puy Arnaud has a backward nose of blackberry and cassis fruit, just slightly stilted compared to others. The palate is medium-bodied with stringy tannins and a little chewy, leading to a muscular finish. Not bad, but it lacks a bit of finesse.
