Château Petit Védrines, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France 2013
Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and Muscadelle with 16 months in oak.
Made from noble rotted grapes, this is the second wine from legendary 2ème Cru Classé Sauternes producer Doisy-Védrines. Rich, golden in appearance and a luscious blend of pineapple, apricot and green apple on the nose. Harmonised citrus, honeyed tropical fruits and a spicy, rich botrytised finish on the palate. Beautifully sweet with a refreshing acidity it has some complexity and a great length.
