2010 Semillon 'Reserve du Chateau' 375ml

Chateau La Rame
Regular price $51.00

Chateau La Rame is one of the most renowned properties in this appellation. The hillside vineyards overlook the Garonne River and face full south as they slope downwards; creating a superb terroir for producing sublimely delicious, yet fresh and digestible sweet wine. As in Sauternes the harvest is done entirely by hand and proceeds in successive passes, or tries, over a series of weeks. Chasing intense ripeness and balance, strict berry selection is de-rigueur.

 

A complex and concentrated nose of honey, dried apricots, subtle white flowers and hints of vanilla. After an elegant attack, the palate develops a powerful rich body that is well-balanced by the freshness. The oak is well integrated and subtle, the finish is expressive, complex and long. ideally the wine deserves 5 years cellaring before enjoying it and it will evolve elegantly over a couple of decades.
