AOC Sainte-Croix-du-Mont Sweet Wine

The residual sugar level makes this wine a real sweet wine. It is therefore superior to a simple moelleux wine. This is particularly true as here the sugar is perceptible only through perfectly well mastered botrytis which gives to the wine a beautiful complexity, enhanced by an acidity preserving all the freshness necessary for the best sweet wines.

    TASTING NOTES

    A golden-coloured wine highlighted with amber tints. The expressive bouquet harbours all the notes typical of the best sweet wines – candied fruit, a touch of exoticism, pineapple, mango and floral notes. After the already seductive nose, the palate displays remarkable balance between richness and freshness, the back-of-palate lingering with notes of candied orange and tropical fruit. A very beguiling wine which leaves no doubt as to its cellaring potential. Delicious as an aperitif or to accompany a relaxed meal with friends.

    TASTING NOTES

    This 2012 is a credit to the producer, firstly thanks to its particularly limpid appearance, then to its intense, complex bouquet that exudes candied orange, blossom and spices, and finally thanks to it lush palate gorged with magnificent aromas of dried apricot and honey. A hint of tropical fruit adds the final touch to some fine aromatic complexity. Served very chilled, it promises a deliciously fresh and fruity tasting experience.
