Chateau La Fleur d'Or Sauternes 2010

Chateau La Fleur d'Or Sauternes 375ml Half bottle 2010    
Sku: 1840464*

A private label Sauternes from Bordeaux negociant and Sauternes expert, Bill Blatch, the wine is made from blending superior wines from small, lesser known properties with wines from well-known chateaux. The final blend is always lively and fresh and bears the hallmarks of a true Sauternes. The vineyards are mostly in Barsac, where the misty morning microclimate encourages the growth of Botyrtis. The average age of the vines is 35 years old and the soils are predominantly red, ferruginous clay with some gravel.

Tasting notes
An elegant yellow color with notes of candied apricot, honey and dried sweet stone fruit, this wine is complex and balanced. A pleasant lift of acidity on the finish.

Technical notes
The botrytis grapes are hand harvested and the wine is traditionally vinified in small steel vats. The wine was aged for one year in barrels followed by an additional year in steel vats.
