Château Loupiac-Gaudiet 2008 Loupiac
Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc | Alc: 14% – Dessert Wine
Loupiac, Bordeaux, France
Château Loupiac-Gaudiet dates from the 15th century and has been the property of the Ducau family since 1920. It is situated in the village of Loupiac high above the Garonne river and directly across from the appellations of Barsac and Sauternes. The vineyard is planted with 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc and harvesting is done in stages to allow botrytis to fully affect the grapes. After fermentation the wine remains “en cuve” for some months before being bottled. The château does not mature its wine in oak. The resulting wine is one of delicate flavors and pristine balance.
Noble Rot and Sauternes fans take note! This beautiful, pale yellow wine is an ideal accompaniment for the after dinner cheese plate. Gently sweet with notes of honeyed apricots and vanilla.
