Top of Our Dessert/Sweet Wines
Posted on August 07, 2017 by Abbelio Wines | 0 comments
These sweet wines are great with deserts or cheese! They can also be appreciated alone as the dessert.
- The top one among our tastes should be our 1999 Château Filhot, Sauternes, 375ml, it can also be simply for an aperitif!
- 2012 Château Lestevenie Saussignac 500ml, It is made in the same way as Sauternes except for the addition of extra sugar. Only the best, hand-picked, "noble rot" Semillon grapes are used to make this exquisite wine, a unique appellation in that it is the only sweet / dessert wine.
- 1990 Chateau Rieussec Sweet, vaguely sticky nose. Certainly impressive for the sugar level! And there's an attractive savoury undertow that stops it being sickly. Lots there. Reverberates. Long. Very long. It has that thing that a good Condrieu has: a subtext.
