50 wines to try before you die! - Our Forty First Wine - Chateau Filhot, Sauternes 2005 75cl

Sauternes, or sweet white Bordeaux, remains for us one of the wonders of the wine world - which in fact it is, when you consider how hard it is to make both technically and financially. There have been vineyards at Chateau Filhot since the seventeenth century and the wine was in fact called Chateau Sauternes until the end of the nineteenth century. The house style is somewhat drier than some of its famous peers, as 36% Sauvignon is used in the blend, dominated by Semillon. 2005 was one of the strongest recent vintages in Bordeaux and the Filhot 2005 expresses beautifully all that is best in a sauternes: golden in the glass, rich in the mouth, mango, tropical fruit, honeyed richness yet nevertheless with a pleasing freshness that make it so versatile. A most agreeable pudding wine; a substitute for dessert; an accompaniment with foie gras - Filhot is dry enough to work even an aperitif. Truly a wonderful wine. مؤشر اسعار الذهب

Although one of our firm favourites, sweet white Bordeaux wines– often called Sauternes – are under-appreciated when compared to their red sisters. We think this partly reflects the feeling that one could never drink a ‘whole bottle’, even when dining en famille. Hard to believe though that one would think that a single glass of some of these sensational wines could ever be enough on its own! ما هى الوظائف التي تحقق أعلى ربح من الأموال http://encore-realty.com/?sebig=tanzania-valuta-forex&71b=e1 tanzania valuta forex It’s a shame: making sweet white Bordeaux is a real labour of love for the viticulteurs – even the greatest, Chateau d’Yquem, with its legendary ageing potential, is said to struggle to make ends meet financially. The reason is the need for the grapes to endure noble rot, a fungus that concentrates the grapes. Noble rot can too often just become rot, undermining the crop. It also means that the harvest must be intensive – often by hand and the grape selection extremely rigorous. استراتيجية الخيارات الثنائية مع البولنجر باند كيف يمكنني تداول الاسهم الامريكية As an example, 2012, in particular, was a very tricky year for the Sauternes stickies and other producers weren’t exactly helped by Yquem’s decision not to make a 2012 vintage, underlining that year’s poor conditions. We love it though: we think a good Sauternes can work as well as an aperitif as a pudding wine, though we recognise that this may not be to everyone’s taste (we say: give it a go).
The partnership between foie gras and Sauternes is well known (but we actually think a Gewurztraminer, like our Hugel, can work better sometimes). However, we think nothing matches the nobility of a Tour Blanche or a Rieussec at the end of a meal. Try it as an alternative to the pudding itself! We have managed to obtain some small parcels of fantastic Sauternes from great vintages. The greatest recent vintage for Sauternes was 2001, which some have heralded as the greatest vintage ever, closely followed by the 1997. We have managed to obtain some half bottles of Rieussec 2001 (Parker: 99/100, remember that Rieussec comes from the same stable as Lafite) and Suduiraut 1997 – perhaps customers will feel less compunction opening and enjoying a smaller format!

But our Sauternes selection now has many of the great names in sweet wine Bordeaux to try in addition to those two: Climens, Tour Blanche, Guiraud, Fargues, Suduiraut and  d’Arche.
