Notes

The 'other' property of the Comte de Lur-Saluces (of Yquem), offered here en primeur for the first time. A small vineyard which produces a tiny amount of wine - this year only 1,800 cases. Standards and quality are extremely high, and the wine's power and intensity mimic those of Yquem. This wine will age effortlessly for 20 years, and will require at least 10 years cellaring to show its full greatness. Astoundingly rich and intense, yet fine and fresh, this is a very reasonable price for such an excellent wine.

Notes
The heat of the year was challenging for Sauternes, bringing about a harvest that came in almost one continuous pass, from September 14 to 25, one of the quickest on record, and ensuring a silky, creamy texture. Grilled toffee notes, with bitter mandarin peel, cinammon, gingerbread, baked apples and orange cake. A tawny, walnut colour that it is slightly deeper than the its surrounding vintages, suggesting it it is ageing a little faster, but the cloves and white pepper spice add a mouthwatering signoff. One third new oak. François Amirault winemaker.
