2014 Mouton Cadet Reserve Sauternes

Crafted by legendary First Growth producer Chateau Mouton Rothschild - outlandish bargain!

FWDC 90/100

Description

Rather than finishing the evening with a match of crème brulee or brandy snaps, many French men and women enjoy Sauternes as an aperitif with Foie Gras, fine cheeses and dried fruits. This 2014 Mouton Cadet Reserve is a blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle for aromatic lift. A beautifully inexpensive introduction to Sauternes, it is gorgeous in its youth and will develop for a decade or more in the bottle, gaining further complexity and honeyed richness.

Smells

Beautifully lifted aromas of wild honey, tangerine jelly, citrus blossom, ripest apricot and bergamot.

Tastes

Luscious, honeyed and rich with a wall of sweet tropical fruit and Mirabelle plum, a racy acid line cleans up the finish, which builds and continues to reveal further nuance long after you've swallowed. A stunning sweet wine for a reasonable price tag, enjoy it before or after a meal with pastries, cheeses, crème brulees or fruit-based desserts.
