A gorgeous dessert wine! Made from the same grape varieties as Sauternes and using the same methods of production but for a fraction of the price. This is luscious, fine, balanced and exceptional value.
Vineyards are based in the heart of Perigord, near Bergerac along the valley of the Dordogne river. Here, on the river slopes there is a particular micro-climate which allows the creation of this style of sweet wine. Vines average 25 years of age, grapes are hand harvested at a very late stage of maturity, in three successive ‘triage’, to ensure that only the most mature grapes are picked and then after fermentation the wine is matured for 24 months.
A fabulous dessert wine, sweet and luscious with a great backbone of fine acidity for a clean finish. The nose is fresh with classic botrytis marmalade and ripe nectarine. Flavours on the palate are richer: honey with a finishing twist of bitter orange
The French would serve this as an apéritif but it is also good with paté or blue cheeses such as Roquefort. Desserts such as crème brulee or apple crumble are also an amazing accompaniment.
