Product Notes
The most famous and prestigious sweet white wine in the world, vines of the Appellation Sauternes Controlee are stimulated by a unique microclimate during autumn, as sunny, dry weather of the day alternates with cool fog at night. Due to the meagre yields of two to three glasses per vine.
