Tasting Notes ...

SWEET WHITE WINE - SAUTERNES - BORDEAUX - FRANCE

........The perfect combination of a Terroir and Tradition !...........

Cépages : Sémillon 90 % Sauvignon 10%

Completely fascinating Sauternes. All elements, from colour to aromas to flavours, match exactly. It starts with an unusual medium yellow colour (colour for Sauternes is often much darker). On the nose, pleasing and delicate aromas of mango, melon, sweet grass, honeycomb and a whiff of blue cheese. On the palate, this is just medium in sweetness. Lithe, fine and elegant with good core of acid bringing freshness. This is an outstanding Sauternes from a relatively new house. Pair with lighter blue cheeses or fruit tarts. It is also enjoyable on its own.

The plots on Fargues Langon are close to the best wines of Sauternes. Harvesting is done by successive sorting. Indeed Botrytis cinerea develops during the season. Only grapes on-ripened, affected by noble rot will harvest.
