Grape varieties  Sémillon and Muscadelle (50/50). Old vines about 70 years on Tabanac terroir.

Pickings  the grapes are handpicked in several waves  from late September to the end of October in order to harvest only the ripest, most botrytised grapes. This method entails very low yields, but produces a level of quality acknowledged by numerous experts.  

Ageing  in vat and oak barrels for 24 months and in bottles.

Serving suggestions  Apéritif, foie gras, cold vegetable salads with vinegar dressing, white meats, strong cheeses (goat, Roquefort, Pyrénées), and chocolate desserts.

Our tasting notes  this wine has amazing dried fruit, apricot, vanilla and citrus aromas. Its sweetness is balanced by fresh acidity and alcohol, and the very long aftertaste is reminiscent of tropical fruit. This wine is quite rare, especially as we do not produce it every year to ensure optimum quality, similar to that of a Sauternes AOC. You can keep it in bottles 15 years.
