Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2022 Clos Puy Arnaud is a real stunner, and one of the great under the radar gems on the Right Bank. The 2022 is an especially rich, heady wine. Blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice, leather and gravel build in a heady, sumptuous wine that delivers the goods. Clos Puy Arnaud could easily challenge many more illustrious names on the Right Bank. 94-96 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2022 Clos Puy Arnaud displays a delicate yet complex bouquet with aromas of sweet cherries, loamy soils, iris, lilac, dark berries and hints of menthol. Medium to full-bodied, charming and fleshy, with powdery tannins, it's penetrating and saline. This estate is producing more and more characterful, high quality wines, and the the 2022 is one of the best ever. 90-92 Yohan Castaing, Wine Advocate.

The look and feel of this wine is one of quiet confidence, beautifully made wine from owner Thierry Valette. Less exuberant than many in the vintage, with austerity and lean musuclarity to the tannins, then unfurls to reveal fragrant peony and tomato leaf notes, sappy and mouthwatering, understated and yet fully ripe, excellent quality. Harvest September 3 to 15, certified organic and biodynamic.  94 Jane Anson.
