The sweet whites from Sauternes are among the most interesting and individual wines produced anywhere in the world. The curious climatic conditions allow the grapes – Semillon and Sauvignon – to reach full maturity. Cool, misty nights and mornings followed by sunny days by the small Cirons river allow the very special “pourriture noble” to form, concentrating the sugars without diminishing the acidity and creating wines that are at once both sweet and fresh.
Our Sauternes comes the heart of the appellation and in close proximity to Château d’Yquem. This wonderfully sweet, golden nectar is produced from a blend of Semillon, Sauvignon and Muscadelle. Delicious with Foie Gras or paired with a sweet pudding.
Please note we are in the process of refreshing some of the labels across our wine and spirits collection, so your bottle might look different to the one pictured.
