Chateau de Suberne Loupiac 2006


Loupiac is one of the "acks" that surround Sauternes where much very good dessert wine can be had at remarkably fair prices considering the cost and effort it takes to produce high quality wines in this region.  The 2006 Chateau de Suberne can be picked up for a song at under $40 for a 750ml bottle.  It's a blend of 80% semillon and 20% sauvignon blanc, with aromatics of lemon, grapefruit, honey and orange peel.  The sweetness of the wine on the palate is balanced by fresh acidity and good length.  A lovely wine.
