Semillon 80%, Sauvignon 17% and Muscadelle 3%
Packed full of mango, pineapple and dried apricots, with a good lime zest twist on the finish. Certified organic. Now owned by the Helfrich family of Grands Chais de France, as of December 2018, so this is the first full vintage under the new team, taking over from the Cathiard/Moulin partnership.

Sauternes, 40 miles (65km) south of Bordeaux city, is a village famous for its high-quality sweet wines. Although some wineries here produce dry wines, they sell them under appellations other than the sweet-specific Sauternes appellation. The village is surrounded on all sides by vineyards, the best of which produce some of the world's most prestigious, long-lived and expensive dessert wines. A half-bottle of top-quality, aged Sauternes wine from a good vintage can command prices in excess of $1000.
