Maison Sichel Sauternes
Declassified Cru Classe Sauternes - beautiful & classic example
80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc, high botrytis influence.
When the top houses have fruit that doesn't quite make the grade for their top tier wines, it gets declassified to the negociant houses. This is made and bottled at the original estate Chateau Guiraud (Premier Grand Cru Classe) and has most of what you'd expect from a Sauternes at 5 times the price.
Rich, complex wine. The bouquet of bitter orange, apricot jam with a hint of
cloves and elegant toasty notes. Creamy, with toastiness at every stage of the tasting, the palate is well-balanced and long, offers a touch of fruity freshness at the finish. Excellent Sauternes.
Situated some 40 kilometers south east of Bordeaux, between the Garonne river and the Landes forest to the south, the Sauternes vineyard produces what many wine experts and wine lovers believe to be, quite simply, the best sweet white wine in the world.
