A luscious sweet wine with beautiful golden yellow colour; this is a classic Sauternes from the 2015 vintage and a Premier Grand Cru Classe, ie one of the best wines of the appellation. Owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild who also own Chateau Lafite, they know a thing or two about great wine from the Bordeaux area, both red, white and sweet!
The 2015 is a blend of 86% Semillon and 14% Sauvignon Blanc to give aromas of honey and lemon with a succulent, sweet palate that has generous flavours of apricot, peach, mango and pear. It’s a rich, satisfying dessert wine and a treat to sip without food too, as well as making an excellent gift. With a hint of vanilla and spice, it’s both delicious and a fascinating wine to savour and enjoy as it reveals its many layers of flavour in the glass over time. 6000 cases made on average, a small quantity given worldwide demand for this fantastic wine. 14% ABV.
