Arsac has become the artistic center of the Médoc, rivaling Mouton-Rothschild's museum. Since buying Arsac in 1986, owner Philippe Rauox has achieved a big turnround in quality: this 2003 Cuvée Le Colombier, the top wine from the property, shows great dusty tannins, hearty fruit and considerable richness. Imported by Victoire Imports.
