The Oddbins Take

Chateauneuf is a classic. And this is as breathtaking an example as you're likely to come by at this outstandingly reasonable price tag. With this vintage of Cuvee Capelane outscoring renowned competitors at twice the price in many a contest, Domaine de l'Arnesque really are showcasing their virtuosity here. Smooth, rich and profound, this is a really unmissable must-try expression of this exalted style.

Julian Biscarrat and brother-in-law Sebastian Pathier began a small but successful négociant business twelve years ago in the Southern Rhône. Gradually, with the proceeds of the business, they began to buy small plots of precious old vines. In 2005 they were able to produce their first estate grown and bottled wines.
