In 2001, Dourthe sourced a few of the best barrels from two ‘mystery’ and very famous Sauternes chateaux, to blend together to make an outstanding Cuvee d’Exception.

Showing fragrant honeysuckle and creme brulee on the nose, with attractive medium weight in the mouth and very good concentration, this needs a slither of Roquefort or a passion-fruit mousse!  The palate exudes lovely honey and sweet ripe peach followed by a delicious and refreshing finish. Brimming with charm, it is perfect for current drinking.

Jancis Robinson has written of the 2001 Sauternes and Barsac vintage:

“The rain that spoilt the reds encouraged botrytis to such an extent that this is a truly magnificent, long-term vintage, helped by a greater degree of selection and cellar expertise than ever before. Perhaps the greatest Sauternes vintage in modern times.”
