This Sauternes Grand Vin is straw-colored. The wine has nice aromas of pineapple, peach, flower honey and candied fruit. The wine is generous, with a nice middle palette that is both very full and quite fresh. The pourriture noble (noble rot) is top class, the wine elegant due to its fine acidity. It gives a feeling of freshness against a background of round sweet flavors. In the aftertaste it is creamy and has a refreshing finish. Ideal to combine with foie gras terrine, but also with sweetbreads, fried scallops or a dessert with ripe yellow fruit and almonds, for example.
The Sauternes area is located on the left bank of the Garonne, 40 km upstream from Bordeaux. This area consists of 5 villages: Sauternes, Preignac, Bommes, Fargues, all located on the right bank of Ciron (tributary of Garonne). Barsac is located on the left bank of Ciron. The Barsac appellation benefits from a specific microclimate due to the confluence of cold water from Ciron and warm water from Garonne, thus developing morning mists in autumn that quickly migrate towards the sun.This climate variety promotes the development of noble rot (Botrytis Cinerea). The terroir consists of several layers of silica, chalk and gravel that form a harmonious whole. These layers, which have been deposited with the passage of time, allow the wine to acquire finesse, strength and lushness.
