Clos Puy Arnaud is mentioned in the Feret book(the bible of Bordeaux's Wines) in 1874 as a 1st growth. In 1898, this book is talking about Puy Arnaud as "one of the more researched wine of the country". Thierry Valette (ex co owner of Chateau Pavie 1st classified growth of St Emilion) is producing here, since 2000, fine, fresh and mineral wines, which strongness is always under control of a soft extraction.
Since 2000, the vineyard was running through the principles of an organic approach and has been involved into biodynamic agriculture in 2004. We are trying year after year to improve fruits and salinity from the "terroir" and a personality for each "cuvee". We also look for energy in wine, which is one of the impressive results of the biodynamic approach. Certified organic and biodynamic by Label AB since 2009, Label Biodyvin since 2010, Demeter since 2014. The art of winemaking is to find a way to help create each uniqueness. In other words, there is truth in wine and it will be there.
