Vinification Details

  • Grapes are meticulously harvested by hand; the botrytised grapes are then repeatedly sorted so that only those perfectly affected by noble rot are used to create the final wine. Fermentation is temperature-controlled in the winery, after which the wine is placed in oak barrels and matured for around 18 months. The individual grape varieties are carefully blended after maturation.

History

  • The Sauternes region has produced uniquely sweet style wines since well before the 18th century. The vagaries of climate from vintage to vintage, the extended length of time winegrowers must wait for noble rot (botrytis) to develop in the vineyards, and the time-consuming and meticulous harvesting techniques, combine to make Sauternes a very expensive, and very challenging, wine to produce.

Regional Information

  • The Sauternes region is located about forty kilometres southeast of Bordeaux. There are five communes: Sauternes, Barsac, Fargues de Langon, Bommes and Preignac. The Sauternes region is unique in that it is dedicated to producing exclusively sweet style wines. It excels in the development of "noble rot", or Botrytis, which is the critical ingredient in producing these great, naturally sweet wines. Sauternes with blue cheese or foie gras are classic wine and food pairings; it also makes a delicious aperitif, or digestif after a meal.

A real treat.

5 stars

We love this wine. I like to serve it when we have guests with a really sharp citron tart and then carry on drinking it with the blue cheese. We have had some great responses, everyone loves it. It's not a wine you would want to drink every day, but perfect as a special treat.

Pure Nectar in a bottle!

5 stars

If yiou like dessert wines this is the wine for you, if you don't like dessert wines this one will convert you. It is very difficult to summarie everything this wine offers try it yourself you will not be disappointed, serve slightly chilled and drink it slowly and see how the wine develops over 20 minutes or so. Great with cheese and rich chocate puddings or some fois gras. At £13.99 a half bottle iot is not cheap but you will remeber this wine long after you have forgotten the price. 5 stars - simply gorgeous!!!

Although there are many sweet wines, Sauternes is still the best. This is a fine example, smooth and deeply satisfying.
