Gilded with fine gold, this delicious Sauternes offers a bouquet of remarkable complexity boasting aromas of ripe apricots, pineapple, mango and honey. On the palate, a smooth, rich and refined liquor instantly invades the palate with a great balancing freshness.
Perfect with a lemon meringue tart as well as being a great accompaniment to Roquefort cheese.
Harvesting is carried out by hand over several tranches. Each time the pickers go through the vines, they take only the over-ripe or rotted grapes to get the maximum sugar and Botrytis character. Once at the vat house, the grapes are pressed and fermented in stainless steel vats, in which the temperature is not allowed to exceed 22 ºC. The alcoholic fermentation is interrupted by mutilation with SO2 and by cooling when the optimal organoleptic balance is reached. The wine is aged in vats and barrels for a period of 10 to 12 months.
