Château d'Arche Cover Image

A brief history

More than 400 years of history and traditions. Château d’Arche is located in the heart of the village of Sauternes, the most famous of the five villages where Sauternes an exceptional wine is produced in the world.
Located 40km south of Bordeaux, the specificity of the vineyard is created by the Garonne and the Ciron rivers. The meeting of the cold waters of the Ciron and the warmer waters of the Garonne generates from the end of the summer a morning fog providing optimal humidity. The dry weather in the afternoon dries out the grapes and concentrates the aromas.

Château d'Arche, Grand Cru Classé de Sauternes, has taken advantage of its exceptional terroir to create a wine with very fine bubbles. Some qualitative vines, planted with Semillon et Sauvignon, have been especially driven to produce this sparkling wine. After the second fermentation in bottles and ageing on lath, we add for the disgorgement a dosage liquor based on Château d'Arche, grand cru classé en 1855.
