"Prieuré d'Arche is the second wine of Château d'Arche. The Prieuré wines come mainly from the young vineyards of Château d'Arche (vines under 10 years old), as well as some Sauvignon Blanc vines which are specially dedicated for this purpose. They are generally fresh and tart, easy and pleasant to taste." - Winery
"Prieuré d’Arche combines the richness, finesse, and vivacity of a great Sauternes and represents outstanding value for the appellation. Prieuré d’Arche is a vividly fruity and lively Sauternes that is intended for current enjoyment. It is made from 15- year-old vines at the Château d’Arche estate. The Château has one of the finest terroirs in Sauternes, and is classified as a Second Growth. It is located on a hill above the village of Sauternes on gravel and limestone-clay soil that is ideal for ripening and the development of botrytis. " -Importer
