Production: Sweet wine base in the Semillon, the grape variety for excellency for the great white wines of Bordeaux, both dry and sweet. A grape variety that is particularly susceptible to noble rot, hence its importance in the Sauternes district, a small enclave in Graves devoted to the production of sweet white wine located about 40 km south-east of Bordeaux.
Elaborated mainly from Semillon supplemented by Sauvignon and a little Muscadelle. Hand harvested and selected from the estate’s 7 acres of chalk, clay and gravel soils.
Tasting Notes: Glowing colour of gold tinged with green. Perfumed nose with ripe apricots, honey, nuts, white flowers and candied fruit. Light and fruity on the palate with an intense and honeyed sweetness taste. Good acidic balance.
Note: Excellent ageing potential. Ideal chilled with desserts or as an aperitif.
