Tasting Note:

A 100% Semillon with 130g/l of residual sugar so on the lighter side of the Sauternes sugar spectrum but one of the finest and most intense examples there is. In her 17 years as owner Bérénice Lurton has never seen such a quick development of botrytis in such a short space of time and never has she seen picking of whole bunches without any “tries.” 90 percent of the grapes were picked in 8 days. We tasted about 12 individual lots that make up the core of the blend and the individual elements suggest something very special, our notes ranged from - very concentrated tight packed bursting droplets of lemon and wild honey flavours, fresh picked flowers, limes, white grapefruit, touches of quince and apricot, complex shades of limestone, salt and mineral, deeply complex but incredibly fine and nuanced, wonderful finesse and balance.
