half bottle - 2012 Petit Guiraud, Sauternes

Made from the same organic vineyards as the Chateaux's top wine, and partially matured in oak barrels this is a more serious Sauternes than the price suggests. Less botrytis grapes are used, so the emphasis is on sweet tropical flavours rather than the more intense marmalade and caramel of some Sauternes, but this makes it perfect to go with fruit based desserts.
