> 2000 Clos Puy Arnaud -  Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France
11/2006 - 2000 Clos Puy Arnaud (Cotes de Castillon)
Deep ruby hue. The aromas are quite recognizable - my wife, who did not know what I was serving immediately said: "That's Clos Puy Arnaud!". Concentrated red fruit, black cherries, roasted bread and soft spices. Velvety, round and juicy mouth. Beautiful mineral tension on the midpalate. A slight bitterness and an average length on the finish makes me think that 2000 Clos Puy Arnaud is notch below the 2001, 2002 and the remarkable 2003. 88/100.
> 2002 Clos Puy Arnaud -  Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France
06/2005 - 2002 Clos Puy Arnaud : beautiful deep ruby color. Very expressive ripe raspberry, prune, currants, soft spices and a hint of smoke. The palate is round and is characterized by a nice and juicy fruit. Tannins are marked but still smooth. Delicate freshness. Very consistent medium palate and finish underlining a quite surprising ripe fruit - tasted blind I thought of a 2003!
2002 Clos Puy Arnaud is truly a wine of pleasure and class. Moreover it appears to be a remarkable Price to Quality deal (approx. 20 US$). 89/100
> 2003 Clos Puy Arnaud -  Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France
08/2007 - 2003 Clos Puy Arnaud: Deep crimson hue. Overflow of splendid red fruit (currant, raspberry) and of very ripe blackcurrant fragrances, almost jammy. Delicate floral flavours. The attack is perfectly gauged, well balanced on a very expressive fruit and a delicate texture. Good freshness supporting the juicy fruit down to the finish. Beautiful length. Life would be great if all the 2003 were similar to 2003 Clos Puy Arnaud. 92/100
> 2004 Clos Puy Arnaud -  Cotes de Castillon, Bordeaux, France
07/2007 - Beautiful bouquet of very fresh red fruit and nutmeg. Pure fruit on the palate from the very beginning. Concentrated and tasty with elegant, velvety tannin. A beautiful long aftertaste with an interesting mineral quality on the tail end. In my opinion, 2004 Clos Puy Arnaud is close in quality to the excellent 2001.
