Another sleeper of the vintage, La Dauphine is making a lot of positive noises recently, and the 2008 exhibits a lush, sweet black currant and black cherry fruitiness intermingled with notions of crushed rocks and an underlying floral note. Supple tannins and a lush, round, medium to full-bodied style suggest this alluring Fronsac should offer delicious drinking for a decade or more.
【Wine Spectator 89pts】
A really tangy style, with mouthwatering tapenade and tobacco notes leading the way for red currant, pomegranate and damson plum fruit, all backed by a note of roasted apple wood. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2014. — JM
AOC Fronsac產區，莊園位處波爾多右岸，比鄰對岸為POMEROL，向南面斜坡。其實波爾多係平原，同細細個學元朗大平原一樣。Château Arnauton位於Le Tertre de Montahut，是波以多最高的山坡。這令葡萄可完全熟成才採收亦釀出優質酒款。
