From the hill sides of Bordeaux to the Valleys of Californian, great wines are made by the same great winemakers. To attenuate the argument between old and new and to avoid a sterile war of words between different worlds, why not simply affix a signature to a wine, that of its creator, a name which will say more to the consumer than a percentage of Cabernet or Sauvignon, a face which will provide an identity more readily than the façade of a château. From this line of thinking was born the idea of the Winemakers' Collection.
Each year, always on the same terroir the one of Château d'Arsac in the Médoc a guest winemaker has "Carte Blanche" to create the ideal wine, the nectar of his or her dreams. From the work in the vineyard to the bottling operation, from the time and type of harvesting through to the maceration, this guest star makes every decision in the manufacturing process. He or she signs the wine in their sole name. Each year, an episode will be written and acted out by a different winemaker.
