The significant investments that have been made by l’Arrosee’s new owner are reflected in the outstanding 2003, which represents a return to form for this formidable St.-Emilion. Behaving like the Sophie Marceau of Bordeaux, this vintage exhibits beautiful aromas of sweet cherries, plums, figs, subtle toasty oak, and abundant black currant characteristics. Velvety textured, voluptuous, pure, and sensual, this dark ruby-colored wine is meant to be consumed over the next 12-15 years. Its beauty, equilibrium, and purity are stunning.

This elegant, powerful, deep ruby/purple-tinged St.-Emilion exhibits sweet cherry, dusty, loamy soil, licorice, and tobacco scents. Medium-bodied and ripe, with an expansive, broad palate yet undeniable elegance as well as precision, it should drink well for 12-15 years.
New owners, significant investments, and new packaging suggests a new image for l’Arrosee, an impressive terroir that began to slip in the nineties. Old-timers will no doubt remember the brilliant 1986, 1985, 1982, and 1961 ... all of which remain in fine form.
