Chateau Haut Bommes 2010 375ml-Sauternes
The blend, made from the 40 years old vines, is 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. The Chateau’s 5 hectares receive the same care and attention in the vineyard as well as for the winemaking as the 1st Growth Clos Haut Peyraguey who is the same producer.
A beautiful golden color, it develops a complex and generous bouquet marked by notes of candied fruit, spice, white flowers and vanilla. The palate is full of fresh fruit, the sweetness is well-balanced by the acidity that carries through the long finish. At least a couple of years of cellaring is recommended upon the wine’s release and it will age beautifully over a couple of decades if you can resist the temptation of drinking it when young.
