Vinification

A beautiful attack of botrytis allowed the harvest to start on September 25. The small surface area and the homogeneous terroir of Sigalas offered, as always, the possibility to harvest quickly “noble rot” of great purity. 5 selections were made until October 22nd. It is a very lively vintage with a beautiful concentration.

Taste

This wine has a pale gold color with brilliant reflections. Floral notes as well as white flesh fruits precede notes of honey and candied orange. The mouth is generous, well balanced and of a beautiful length, opening on aromas of candied fruits. It is a nice Sauternes, to be enjoyed now. To be tasted at 10°C
