An immediately inviting nose, combining apricot fruit, creamy patisserie notes and a certain citrus brightness, leads to a sweet yet beautifully balanced palate. Luscious but never cloying.
La Fleur d’Or is made by Bordeaux-based Sauternes expert Bill Blatch. Since 1995 Bill has used his enviable list of contacts to buy top-notch parcels of wine, the best of which make it into this classic blend. La Fleur d’Or is only made in superior vintages.
The grapes for this wine came from a number of vineyards in the Sauternes appellation, predominantly the commune of Barsac. One hundred percent of the fruit was affected by noble rot.
