Fantastic and most certainly unique sweet wine that hails from vines a stone's throw from the prestigious Château Yquem in Sauternes, where there is a sandy topsoil and blue clay and cobalt beneath. It has floral and spicy bread aromas and the fruit is notable for fresh quince. Racy acids cut the sugar perfectly. You'll see from its colour that it is much darker than traditional Sauternes; one of the many reasons that Alain Déjean has rocked the boat in this often incredibly conservative AC. Since 2010 the bottles no longer bear the label of the appellation as he has 'gone rogue'. One of the only biodynamic, fully natural wines you'll find from this spot.
Rousset-Peyraguey changed our idea of Sauternes wine and blew our minds with his incredibly intricate processes, yielding some of the most stunning, nectar-like wine we have ever had the chance to try. Magical stuff.
