Unit: 37.5cl

These half bottles of Sauternes are great with deserts or cheese or simply for an aperitif! Copper gold colour with amber highlights. Notes of dry apricot and hints of as peach, honey and pineapple. Balanced and elegant structure. Rounded and ripe with well-integrated fresh acidity with a long finish. Grape varieties : Semillon 60% , Sauvignon 36%, Muscadelle 4%

($29.50) Pale color. Slightly swampy, high-toned nose of licorice and bug spray. The spicy flavors offer modest concentration and are slightly offputting. Just this side of volatile.
