Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of the region's most legendary château. While we aren't allowed to actually reveal the source, it's safe to say its location in the Ciron Valley exposes the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit to conditions perfect for the development of botrytis. Charming, elegant and an exceptional value for what's in the bottle. A rich wine with fine acidity, the 2010 has wonderful pineapple and coconut aromas that carry through onto the lush palate. A stunning wine just like its big brother, this is the best stickie value in the world, and we think if you knew its provenance you'd buy it by the case! Superb bargain!

This starts with surprisingly complex aromas of Pineapple, tangerine, clover honey and tarragon that seem to build as the wine aerates. The mid-palate is viscous and rich but with great acidity to the spiced apricot fruit, honeysuckle and paraffin notes that show great volume but no excessive weight. The fact that this is made by one of the most well regarded Sauternes houses makes the price/quality ratio even more astonishing.

The lifting acidity balancing the beautiful amalgamation of fruits and honey, makes this Sauternes a perfect choice to accompany a Pâté/foie appetizer - at the beginning of the meal instead of at the end! Although, of course it will work wonders with dessert or as "the dessert" with nuts and cheese. A great choice of wine for those with an adventurous sense of the culinary.
