Duc de Sauternes 2015 (Maison du Sauternes)

Wine Card

Produced with the widespread contribution of all the over 80 winemakers participating in the Maison of Sauternes (must visit with free tasting), this botrytized sweet wine expresses with simplicity the typical characteristics of such a famous appellation as Sauternes Contrôlée. Bright appearance of a deep straw yellow color, fragrant notes of citrus, wild flowers and aromatic herbs along with a flavor rich in sweetness and viscosity, just a little too fleeting on the finish. But how can we expect more from this entry level champion of quality and price?
