Vinous

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Fleur d'Arthus reveals delicate kirsch, raspberry leaves and black cherry scents with hints of roses and new leather plus a touch of cigar box. Medium-bodied, soft, refreshing and elegantly styled, it has a lovely, quiet intensity and perfumed finish.

Nez intense, beaucoup de petits fruits noirs, bois perceptible, notes toastées importantes, bonne à très bonne complexité. Tannins distinctifs, structuré, fruit juteux derrière elle, beaucoup de cerises noires, mûres, très bonne acidité. La finale est longue, délicatement épicée et juteuse.

Nice punch to this young red with a very pretty center palate of fruit. Medium body, plenty of succulent blackberry fruit and a long and silky finish.

This is overly tight, not letting the light in right now. Certainly the 100% Merlot fruit is highly charged and plumped up, yet the depth of fruit suggests it is best to enjoy in the next five to eight years. From the sand-clay soils of Vignonnet.

The 2016 La Fleur d'Arthus is terrific. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, mocha, espresso and torrefaction abound. Deep, plush and sensual, with striking inner sweetness and depth, the 2016 hits all the right notes. This is an especially sumptuous, racy Saint-Émilion.

La Fleur d'Arthus is primarily a family property and has around ten hectares in the commune of Saint-Sulpice-de-Faleyrens, on a soil rich in silica. With a favorable terroir for Merlot, the latter is the majority in the blend.


The vines are cultivated with the greatest care throughout the year, to obtain high quality fruits with respect for nature. To help the berries ripen and contain the yields, the property uses the stripping method in addition to the green harvest.During the harvest, the winemakers can count on fifteen people to harvest the 10 hectares of the vineyard.


The harvest is carefully sorted in order to keep only the most beautiful fruits. The wine making is done in a traditional vat where cement is in the spotlight, before the aging carried out with new barrels for the most part.
