CHÂTEAU D'ARSAC - MARGAUX
BORDEAUX | FRANCE
Philippe Raoux acquired the Arsac property in 1986 and made extensive renovations to the château and completely modernized the winery. A unique experience occurred when he approached the INAO, France’s national wine institution and wine regulation board, to re-qualify Château d’Arsac’s vineyard into the Margaux appellation. A true expression of tenacity by a vineyard owner. Since 1995, 54 hectares of the vineyard are classified under the AOC Margaux appellation, the remainder are classified under the AOC Haut-Médoc appellation. He endeavours continuously to make Château d’Arsac a permanent expression of linking modernity with tradition. Château d’Arsac is now regarded as one of the most original châteaux of the Médoc.
