Rare and prestigious, the Selections de Grains Nobles are obtained by harvesting grapes affected by "noble rot", Botrytis cinerea. Concentration makes the identity of the grape variety more discreet, with the benefit of exceptional power, complexity and length in the mouth. These vintages are produced on average once a decade.
Harvest on October 17, 2017. Very gentle pressing of whole botrytised grapes. Strict settling to guarantee the limpidity and purity of the juice. Long alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, followed by a maturing on fine lees for more than 6 months.
Golden yellow dress, with beautiful legs testifying to its richness.
Fruity nose, rose and exotic fruit aromas. Notes of candied fruits such as mirabelle plum and yellow peach.
Ample and balanced, with notes of vanilla, caramel, honey and very ripe yellow fruits. Long and slightly spicy finish.
