Making Techniques The grapes arrive in baskets which are emptied into a modern horizontal pneumatic press. The pressing lasts much longer than that needed for dry white wine, taking four hours or more per charge and it is the richest juices which come out last. The wine is aged in French oak casks for 18 to 24 months.
Awards and/or Press Quotes
Decanter Magazine "Super nose with some exotic pineapple/mango/passion fruit undertones mixed with Vouvray-like blossom-tree and quince jelly, enormous body, but incredible purity and crystal-like transparency, great length, a masterpiece! Drink 2020-2070" 19/20.
Wine Spectator "A powerfully rendered Sauternes, with apricot, ginger cream, marzipan, creamed peach and melon fruit, featuring a long, heather honey-filled finish. Shows polished edges already, but will need some time to unwind. Best from 2018 through 2030" 93 Points
