Discover our terroir
The 250-hectare Arsac estate is home to 108 hectares of vines, including 54 in the Margaux appellation, 50 in the Haut-Médoc appellation and 4 in the Bordeaux Blanc appellation (Sauvignon Blanc). The estate’s terroir, comprising a sandy-gravel rise combined with a fairly thin layer of clay, is conducive to winegrowing.
Château d’Arsac is also open to artistic creation. Every year since 1992, the estate has acquired a work of art signed by a major contemporary artist. Over time, the château has built an impressive collection of artworks known as the “Jardin des Sculptures”, or “Sculpture Garden”. At Arsac, vines and art are intrinsically linked. The former funds the annual purchase of a work of art and, in exchange, the art lends the estate its original, exclusive personality, making it one of the most visited sites in the Médoc.
