Product description

Noble Rot

The walls of this estate have a Spanish-Byzantine look that will amaze visitors at first sight. The soil is very suitable for the three essential Sauternes grapes: Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. A unique white wine is produced here, not only because of the special way in which the grapes are picked and the wine is produced. Also, the natural process of the ‘noble rot’ (Botrytis) that takes place in the vineyard, and which characterizes the Sauternes, contributes to a mystical blend of aromas, flavors and sweetness which over the years will gradually be adorned in the most beautiful golden autumn hues.

Rich Flavours

This wine displays gorgeous aromas of coconut, honeyed oranges, tangerines, pineapples, mangoes, and other tropical fruits. It is medium to full-bodied and super-rich, but not a blockbuster. It possesses low acidity (in flavour, but not in terms of
analyses), and a long, 40-second finish. This superb 1997 exhibits considerable botrytis, as well as a thick, unctuously-textured style.
