Sauternes (2nd Wine of Chƒteau de Malle)

A fresh, intense honeyed Sauternes perfect for drinking now made from younger vines.

The grapes are, quite naturally, hand-picked and as many as 5 passes can be made through the vineyards over several days to ensure that the noble-rot effected grapes are only picked at the moment they are perfectly 'r“ti' (literally translates as roasted). The production of Sauternes is clearly a highly labour-intensive exercise. 2011 13% abv.

The Chƒteau de Sainte - H‚lŠne comes from the younger vines of 10 to 15 years which will, when more mature, be used to make the grand vin. The harvest averages about 14 hectolitres per hectare.
