Chateau d’Arsac is one of the oldest properties in the Medoc with a history dating back almost 1,000 years to the 12th century. The previous chateau was destroyed during the French Revolution. The current chateau was built in the 1830’s. The estate takes its name from the commune of Arsac, where the vineyards are located. The modern era for Chateau d’Arsac could be said to begin in 1986 when the large estate was purchased by Philippe Raoux. Once the purchase was finalized, Philippe Raoux began an extensive renovation and modernization of Chateau d’Arsac from top to bottom.  He brought in Patrick Hernandez as the architect who in his redesign brought in modern elements and a lot of bright, cobalt blue paint into the design, while retaining the chateau’s true, old French charms. The modern sculpture garden is famous in region. 

The vineyard of Chateau d’Arsac is planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. 4 hectares of vines are used for Sauvignon Blanc. In total, Chateau d’Arsac has 112 hectares under vine. But as of 1995, 54 hectares of their vines became classified as being part of the Margaux appellation. 

The 2015 D'Arsac is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Merlot from the Margaux appellation. This purple-tinted red Chateau d'Arsac is fragranced with red berry, toast and smoky notes due to aging process. On the palate, the attack is smooth though full-bodied with a precise, silky and balanced structure. The finish is generous, giving the sensation to crunch the grape. It is a well-produced Margaux.

Wine EnthusiastOwner Philippe Raoux has created both a major sculpture park and a series of impressive vintages at this estate at the western end of Margaux. This vintage is one of the best yet, rich and vibrant with great fruits and solid tannins. It needs serious aging, so drink from 2025.
