Chateau Filhot (Sauternes) - Half Bottle/37.5cl

BDX053

£21.00

Quick Overview

The wines of Sauternes are gilded, sweet, but also fine and delicate. Their " rôti " bouquet develops very well with ageing, becoming rich and complex, with crystallized orange and hazel nut, honey notes. The " rôti " is the specific character given by the noble rot to the Sauternes wines.

description

Details

A blend of Sémillon 60%, Sauvignon 36%, Muscadelle 4%.

The vines for the grapes are south of the village of Sauternes on south-west facing slopes. All the harvesting is done by hand with successive passages through the vines. The grapes are fermented in 50 hectolitre temperature-controlled stainless steel vats between 19 and 21 degreés C. Depending on the grape variety the grapes are fermeneted from 10 to 30 days. Following fermentation there is light and gentle filtration.The wine is then blended around 14 months after fermentation and then  spends two years ageing in oak barrels from oak in the Allier forest of central France, around 1/3 of which are new oak.

Although predominately thought of as a dessert wine the the Chateau Filhot can be enjoyed as an aperitif or throughout the following meals :
Foie gras, melons or scallops. It would also go well with a good roast free range chicken or with fish and a rich sauce such as Turbot or Sole. it pairs really well with blue cheeses such as Roquefort and puddings such as Fruit tarts or an Almond Cake.
