In 1868, L’Arrosee belonged to the minister and a member of the Council of Napoléon III, Pierre Magne. Magne sold Chateau L’Arrosee to the French Ambassador to Austria. Chateau L’Arrosee was obtained by the Dupuch family in the early part of the 20th century. In October of 2013, Domaine Clarence Dillon
owner of Chateau Haut-Brion, announced the acquistion of Chateau L'Arrosee by its wholly owned subsidary, Quintus SAS. The Chateau l'Arrosee vineyard, which covers 9.5 hectares, borders the vineyard of Chateau Quintus so it is easy to see the logic of this acquisition.
Chateau L’Arrosee is an elegant St. Emilion wine. It’s
a traditionally styled Bordeaux wine that is not the most concentrated, deeply
colored or ripest wine produced today. "Powerful and decadent young red. Lots of smoky, berry and cherry character. Full-bodied and very chewy, with loads of fruit. This always impresses me, with its rich and decadent character. Best after 2009. 3,330 cases made."-Rated 92, Wine Spectator. St. Emilion wines make perfect pairings with beef, roasted, grilled, braised and stewed. Game, chicken, veal, pork, cassoulet and fish, depending on how it was prepared.

St-Emilion is a large wine producing area, and due to the number of notably good small vineyards, and the diversity of the terrain, there are many different styles. However, on the whole St-Emilion wines are rich, warm wines which have an easier charm to some who are beginning to appreciate Bordeaux wines. They have a high concentration of the Merlot grape which leads to a round, fruity wine.
