Famille Arbeau Le Temps des Fleurs
Grapes: Négrette, Cabernet Sauvignon
Famille Arbeau are based in Fronton, a tiny but fascinating appellation on the river Tarn around 30 miles north of Toulouse. The Arbeau's winemaking roots in the area date back to 1878, and the domaine is now run by brother and sister Anne and Gérard Arbeau who have converted to organics in order to better express the unique terroir and grape varieties of Fronton.
Le Temps des Fleurs is a blend of Négrette and Cabernet Sauvignon. Powerful and structured with a concentrated nose of cassis and plum lifted by the signature floral nuances of Négrette - peonies, violets and roses.
