Decanter Bronze Medal
Gilbert & Gaillard 2014 Gold Medal
Jancis Robinson 17/20/ 'It's quite frankly delicious ...!'
Robert Parker 88 Points. 'The 2011 Minervois Les Arques is bright and juicy, with plenty of creme de cassis, blackberry, spice, leather and resinous herb-like qualities all showing in its medium-bodied, full and fleshy style… a rock solid bottle of wine to drink over the coming 4 to 5 years.'
