With 12 hectares cultivated in biodynamic farming, certified since the 2007 vintage, Clos Puy-Arnaud is one of the great Côtes de Castillon wines that have nothing to envy to neighbouring Saint-Émilion.
"Grand Vin", the uncompromising cuvée that has made the estate's reputation, authentic, straight and deep, classic, spicy and cut out for keeping.

Revue du Vin de France :
Dupont (Le Point) :
Quarin : 90/100 « Bouche charnue, veloutée, se développant suave, dense et savoureuse en milieu de bouche et jusqu’en finale. Persistance sur un grain de tannin fin. »
Galloni (Vinous) : 92-94/100 « The 2019 Clos Puy Arnaud is dazzling. Rich, inky and wonderfully deep, the 2019 has so much to offer. I can't remember a recent Clos Puy Arnaud with this much density and sheer textural intensity. Inky dark fruit, crème de cassis, violets and licorice all build as this sumptuous, exotically rich Castillon Côtes De Bordeaux shows off its personality. What a wine! »
Martin (Vinous) : 85-87/100 « The 2019 Puy Arnaud has a lovely ripe nose with mulberry and raspberry preserve, generous and well defined. [...] Whilst the aromatics are promising, the palate lacks structure and grip and drifts towards the finish. »
