    Aged for 2.5 years in a mix of 100 year old acacia barrels (which help to preserve acidity) and oak it is protected by natural volcanic sulphur, this wine comes from minute yields of 6hh from a parcel closest to Yquem where there is a sandy topsoil and blue clay and cobalt beneath.  It has floral and spicy bread aromas and the fruit is notable for fresh quince. Unfined and unfiltered. For drinking now to 2022+.

    From an excellent vintage for Sauternes, on the palate this has a sumptuously rich depth of stewed apricots, dates and figs and a little spice on the finish. Very harmonious wine with a superb play on the palate. Unfined and unfiltered. For drinking now to 2025.

    The acidities and proteins in sweet wines change at different rates if subjected to pressure, and so Alain therefore dug a deep trench in his cellar, dry-lined it and buried several barrels in dry sand, deciding via the bio-dynamic calendar on the perfect day to unearth them six years later. A flor develops over the surface of the wine, exactly like a vin jaune in the Jura, and the flavours concentrate and deepen. Extraordinary wine again from a very fine vintage, nutty and spicy, with flavours of figs, dried apricots and mountain honey. Unfined and unfiltered. For drinking now to 2020+.
