    TASTING NOTES

    Sichel Sauternes, crafted by one of the most prestigious classified growths of the appellation, enjoys the same meticulous, very special care that goes into producing the top botrytised wines of this renowned appellation. Here, the Sémillon and Sauvignon combine harmoniously to offer a highly expressive bouquet of citrus notes and jammy fruit with a hint of honey. Over an ample, richly extracted base, the palate displays a many-layered, persistent aromatic array of jammy orange and dried fig notes. Drink very chilled, with a seasonal fruit salad or blue cheese, for example.

    TASTING NOTES

    Sichel Sauternes, crafted by one of the most prestigious classified growths of the appellation, enjoys the same meticulous and very special care that goes into producing the top botrytised wines of this renowned appellation. This wine is the very expression of refinement, whether in its hue of old gold or in its rich and complex bouquet, in which notes of citrus jammy apricot and spices combine with delicate, honeyed fragrances. The palate of this 2017 vintage is truly majestic: creamily voluptuous with a long finish softened by honey flavours with a hint of jammy lemon, which says something about the keeping potential of this remarkably well-balanced wine. No doubt about it, this is an excellent Sauternes! An elegant aperitif to share with friends and a fine dessert wine to round off the meal.
