    Château d’Arche was created in 1580 by Henry d’Arche, dean of the city of Bordeaux. At the time, his wines were already some of the most famous Sauternes. During the 1789 Revolution, the Château was taken over by the state and it was another two centuries before the estate was reunifed. Château d’Arche joined the Grand Cru Classé classification in1855.

    Located 40km south of Bordeaux, on the upper parts of the village of Sauternes, Château d’Arche is built on the summit of hills which overlook its prestigious neighbors, notably Yquem and Guiraud. This exceptional location, along with its varied soils, favors wines with very specifc taste qualities: strength from the gravel soils, aromas from the clays and elegance from the alluvium. Its uniqueness which gives it all of its richness is based on where the vines are planted, entirely on slopes on 53 hectares.

    VINIFICATION

    At maturity, the grapes are harvested by hand and are subject to a rigorous selection. The picking teams are sent 4 or 5 times to select the most botrytised grapes. The wines are matured for over 18 months in oak barrels before bottling
