Domaine de Rousset-Peyraguey Délicatesse d'Or 2003


This is an unusual Sauternes from Domaine de Rousset Peyraguey.  Biodynamically tended and from the heatwave 2003 Bordeaux vintage, it presents (tasted blind) with a richness that is almost intoxicatingly voluptuous.  Almost Rutherglen like.  Aromatics of marmalade, orange peel and brown sugar give way to a rich and long caramel infused palate.

Rating: Very Good
Abv: 13.5%
Price: It's about 27 euros in France.  We may have drunk up the last bottle locally!
