Chateau Laribotte Sauternes 2017
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Sauternes|
Brilliant golden robe. Attractive complex nose of acacias, white flowers, lemon and a touch of honey. Light, fruity mouth with flavors of candied fruits and dry apricots. Long on the palate with backbone, reflecting good acidic balance. Excellent ageing potential. Serve chilled as an aperitif, and with foie gras, white cheeses, and savory desserts.
This style of Sauternes ages relatively quickly, so this apricot-jam and orange-zest-flavored wine with edges of dry botrytis is ready to drink. Ripeness is balanced by acidity in a sweet, perfumed wine. Drink now.
