  • Distinguished and an excellent representative of the appellation, Château l'Arrosée's wines combines power and finesse. Having shown exemplary consistency over the last 20 years, Château l'Arrosée experienced something of a renaissance in 2003 with the arrival of the Caille family.

    Historically there was an underground spring on the site, hence Château l'Arrosée's name (the watered one). The vineyard lies on Saint Emilion's southern slopes, next door to Château Ausone. It has the good fortune to benefit from a similar terroir of clay and silica-limestone soil.

    One section of the vineyard, with a particularly southern exposure, receives a great deal of sunshine and so produces very well-ripened grapes. Furthermore, the clay-alluvial-limestone soil provides a well-regulated supply of water and minerals.

    A second area of vines is planted on sandy-alluvial soil at the base of the hill. This twin terroir contributes to the wines' complexity and character.
