Importer's Notes:

The soils are a mixture of clay and limestone and the vines, 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, are mostly 35 to 50 years old. The vineyard is planted on a steep hill and the Sanfourche’s alternate between plowing the rows and leaving ground cover in order to prevent erosion. Harvesting is all done by hand and it is done in stages to allow botrytis to fully affect the grapes. In an average year, the harvest takes 5 weeks with only 14 days being used for picking the grapes. The grapes are picked with a potential alc. of 17%, resulting in a finished wine of 13.5% alc. and 60 grams RS. After fermentation the wine remains “en cuve” for some months before being bottled. The château does not mature its wine in oak and is able to produces a wine that expresses the delicate flavors of botritys and the pristine balance of a wine with moderate alcohol and lively acidity.

We say: an amazing value alternative to Sauternes, full of ripe golden fruits and zesty balancing acidity.
