    Winemaker's Notes:

    This property's Grand Vin has harmony and balance. Issued from perfectly botrytised grapes, the famous Noble Rot, it marries fruity aromas, spices and floweriness typicall of Muscadelle grapes. Its roundness in the mouth and its elegance fills out in your mouth for minutes; a great classic, at ease on the best tables.

    Perfectly suited for desserts, foie gras, lightly spiced Indian dishes or creamy pasta dishes, as well as Roquefort.

    Blend: 55% Semillon, 45% Muscadelle

    Critical Acclaim:

    A 30-year aging curve is possible for the 2003 Chateau. Composed of 55% Semillon and 45% Muscadelle aged nearly 30 months in French oak, it reveals a dark amber color along with a blockbuster bouquet of toffee, maple syrup, roasted hazelnuts, creme brulee, toasted pineapple and assorted honeyed citrus. Terrific acidity balances out the nearly 120 grams per liter of residual sugar. Possessing superb richness, intensity and length, this is an absolute steal that, as mentioned above, will age at least three decades.
