Tasting Notes

Striking bright golden colour. Candied fruit nose (apricot, quince). Rich and opulent on the palate with a lingering aromatic finish. Attractive drinking now but has the necessary structure mature in the bottle for several years.

The perfect substitute for the prestigious Sauternes, serve this wine as either an aperitif with Roquefort or Blue Cheese or after dinner as a wonderful dessert.

To ensure ripeness and maximum sugar content, only the grapes showing signs of the famous 'noble rot' are picked by hand. Once at the winery, the grapes are pressed and fermented at a temperature maintained at 20°C. The wine is then fined and bottled after ageing for several months in vats.

Producer

Chateau Anniche

The vineyards of Chateau Anniche cover an area of 80 hectares, from which the Pion family has produced wines since the Napoleonic era, and, until 1914, even made their own barrels for transporting the wines.

They now try to combine modern scientific techniques with traditional methods in order to mediate with nature and the elements.
