Château L'Arrosée takes its name from a 10 meter deep underground spring found at the estate (arrosée means "watered").
Bordering some of the stars of the appellation, the vineyard consists of two very different terroirs - one with clay soil and excellent sun exposure in the south-west part of Saint-Emilion and, the other, with sandy soil at the foot of the Saint-Emilion slope.
Château L'Arrosée is elegant and very fresh. Some people even find it has a Burgundy-like delicacy.
Often inconsistent in the past, Château l'Arrosée has progressed significantly since the 2002 vintage, and the arrival of the current winemaking team.
The recent vintages are particularly successful.
