Clos de Nouys 'Cuvee des Grains Dores'
Chenin Blanc is one of the most versatile grapes in the world, ranging from super-dry & austere wines through to this- intensely luscious dessert wine from heavily botrytis fruit. The best Chenins enjoy extra bottle age, and this one is 14 years young.
Wet wool, apricot, pineapple, mango and honey, unctuously rich and sweet with an underlying spiciness. 500 ml bottle of richness - gorgeous.
Drink now or any time over the next 20+ years (seriously).
