2006 Arnauld, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1404154

Back in again for the third time in a year. Maybe the last one hundred cases! Chateau Arnauld is located between Margaux and Moulis, on a large gravel outcropping on the edge of the Gironde, neighboring Chasse-Spleen and Poujeaux. The oceanic breezes off the Gironde estuary keep vines cool, promoting long, even ripening for the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot planted to these mineral-rich, high-draining soils. The blend is typically about half Cabernet and half Merlot, often with a bit more Cabernet. The wines are made in a traditional style made to withstand the cellar: black-fruited with spicy complexity from barrel, a rich midpalate, and fine tannin structure balanced by natural acidity. In other words, it is a steal for under 25 bucks!

Are you kidding me!? How can this wine taste so good for so little? Every time you think you've seen as good a value as it gets, one of our directly imported aged Bordeaux shows up to keep that bar impossibly high. This has beautiful, pure, satisfying raspberry and cherry fruit core, a touch of savory leather and earth, a great acid profile and a long, steady finish. While it is priced for the mid-week meatloaf and mashed potato meal, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to pull it out for a more special occasion.

At 13 years old, this classy, medium-bodied Haut-Médoc is drinking perfectly. It still has nice, lively, black currant fruit, but the tannins are completely resolved, and the texture fully developed. This subtle, intricate wine has much more complexity and interest than I would expect given the cost, and I am used to Clyde finding great deals. This wine is the exact opposite of the modern, high alcohol, inky, thick style that one finds often in the New World and from time to time in Bordeaux. I love the wine as much for its grace notes, which allow it to play so well with food, as I do for its surprising length and silky mouthfeel.
Drink from 2019 to 2026

This little gem of a Bordeaux is very accessible, with dark cherry fruit and softer (though not flabby) tannins. It also has some lively spice, earth and tobacco notes that add complexity and nuance. We have had very good luck here with this producer and this release is no exception to the overall balance of quality and value.
