Vintage: 2015 Region: France
Type: Dessert Wines
Winery: Domaines Baron de Rothchild
Tasting Notes:

90 to 95% Sémillon, 5 to 10% Muscadelle and Sauvignon.
A long period of ageing in small oak barrels was needed to round off this very powerful wine. Citrus and fresh fruit aromas combine with candied apricot and green almonds on the nose. Great length on the palate matched with fruity freshness and vivacity, and a strong impressive of honey and acacia blossom.

The overall impression remains fairly ethereal and floral, making it a perfect accompaniment to an exotic fruit sorbet, or a grilled lobster, or simply a delicious aperitif to enjoy among friends.
