This wine is the result of a rigorous selection of the very best plots for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah grapes. It is aged in oak vats. Notes of cherries, spices and violets create a surprisingly complex character that emerges in the mouth and is followed by long, round fruity, toasted and vanilla aromas.

In the middle of the Gers department, on the Lectoure plain, the Domaine d’Arton stretches over 60 hectares.
South facing, facing the Pyrenees, the 30 hectares of vines, entirely replanted over 20 years ago, are made up of a palette of indigenous varieties of grape.
The land of the Lectoure Haut Armagnac, noted for its countryside of a thousand hills and its rich history; the soil is principally clean, filtering, chalky-clay.
Patrick and Victoire de Montal, both born and bred in Gascony, took on the task of reviving the land of this ancient wine domaine 25 years ago. They completely replanted the well drained and well exposed land. Today almost 35 hectares of vines have given life to this historic landscape, 2008 being their 16th year of grape harvest at Arton.
Formed as a Company as a Societe Civile d’Exploitation Agricole (exempt private partnership), entirely owned by the family, Arton is persuing its project of further plantations and diversification of grape varieties.
