AOP Sauternes

Château de Malle 2nd Cru Classé 1998

€850 Bottle of 10cl

A 1998 Second Growth Sauternes bursting with color and flavor Discover an aged wine with a rich amber color and a nose of candied orange peel and a thousand sweet spices. On the palate, this syrupy wine has the perfect balance of sugar and acidity and the impressive freshness that is so characteristic of great Sauternes wines. In terms of pairing, Béatrice recommends a traditional foie gras, slow roasted pork à l'orange or Roquefort cheese.
