25% Sauvignon 
5% Muscadelle

Fermentation in oak barrels

TASTING NOTES:
The late harvest gives Sauterne & Barsac their absolutely unique characteristics.
A golden color that deepens with age to that of antique gold.
A bouquet of tropical fruit, honey, linden flowers and acacia with hints of almonds and spice.
Especially round, well-balanced taste which develops into a full long aftertaste.
