Arras’ castle

Château des Arras. One after the other, dungeon, fifteenth century military outpost, then sixteenth century noble residence, the château des Arras was then transformed into a country residence. The defensive aspects of the property are removed, the moats filled in, the drawbridge is replaced with a double staircase and two wings are added to the main building. The superb Bordelais property is now dedicated to viticulture. A 27 hectare estate with a single vineyard bordered by stone walls. Claudine Rozier, a wine grower, manages the family estate and cultivates it sustainably. Supple, balanced wines with silky tannins, both for the Prestige blend and the other treasures of the Château des Arras. Their Bordeaux rosé is full of freshness with flowery and peachy notes and should be kept for lovely summer days. Open Day for Pentecost with picnic and photo exhibition at the château. Visits and tastings by appointment.
