"Aromas of Plums, dried strawberries and spices. Some incense. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Tight and linear yet the texture is very silky. Drink now."

Built in the 16th Century, Chateau Maine d'Arman was restored in the 18th Century in the Louis XIII style. The Bassereau family acquired the property in 1900, and have managed it ever since. The Vineyard is in the heart of the Cotes de Bourg, on one of the highest points. It is 8 Hectares in size, on Red Gravels and Clay on chalky subsoils. Their wines are primarily Merlot, with Cabernet and small amounts of Malbec blended in. The wines are aged for 12 months in oak.
