Cellar Selection
"This powerful, concentrated effort shows dense tannins that are balanced by rich black fruits. The wine has a sense of elegance that balances all of the richness. It's worth aging for at least 4 years. -RV" (02/13)

Product Description:

Producer:
"The original name of this property, parts of which date back to the 12th and 16th centuries, was La Salle d'Argadens. It became Chateau Argadens in 2002, when it was bought by Maison Sichel. Covering 111 acres of clay-limestone soil in a single plot, Argadens is well situated on one of the highest hills of the rolling Entre-Deux- Mers region (one of the five highest points, in fact, of the Gironde). The vineyard is well draining and well exposed to the sun and the air."

"Sichel's aim in acquiring Argadens was quite simply to see it express the full potential of its wonderful terroir and become one of the benchmark properties in the Bordeaux Superieur category. To achieve this, the company has invested heavily in terms of finance, time and technology and the resulting wines exhibit greater complexity and depth than ever before." - Importer
