Chateau Filhot Gold Reserve Sauternes 1998 75cl

"A delicious Sauternes, doing exactly what an older sweet Bordeaux should - honey, citrus, lovely old spicy notes. A weighty wine, with that sweetness lingering on the finish."

Without doubt Château Filhot is among the very finest estates in Sauternes. Its architecture, completed just after the French Revolution, is a neo-Louis XVI extravaganza that’s equal to the majesty of the estate’s wines. Made from a combination of rigorously hand selected Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, misty conditions created by the proximity of the river Garonne create conditions ideal for the growth of Botrytis essential for the production of Sauternes.
