Tasting Notes

Full tasting notes to come soon.

Château Violet is exactly the sort of winery that I like - small and family-owned. In fact it has been in the same family for 150 years. Traditional methods are used in the vineyard and winery.

The wine is produced from 85% Sémillon, 10% Sauvignon Blanc and, like the best Sauternes wines, it also contains Muscadelle (5%) which brings some lovely floral aromas. The vines are planted on gravelly soil which helps with complexity of flavours and freshness. Whilst this is a sweet wineit has great acidity which prevents it from being cloyingly sweet.

Food Pairing

A fabulous dessert wine which complements desserts & puddings and some blue cheeses like Roquefort. Also the classic partner for foie gras.

Producer's Notes

This wine is expressive and flattering with a bouquet where candied fruits are enhanced by spices and vanilla. The structure is full with notes of candied lemon. Warm finish.

Beautiful, honey smooth dessert wine from the world's best sweet wine region, Sauternes
