Sauternes lover? This dessert wine has the elegance and succulence of a Sauternes with a more accessible price tag for everyday drinking. What more could you ask for?
Type: Dessert Wine
Origin: Sainte Croix Du Mont, Bordeaux, France
Producer: Chateau Des Arroucats
Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon
My Score: 88/100
The palate is delicately sweet with honeyed characteristics, but also harmonious with its present acidity.
On the nose, I get honey, citrus and candied ginger. The honey and candied ginger follow through to the palate along with added notes of the caramelized sugar and a long, rich finish.
Pairing: Crème brulee or Gorgonzola cheese.
