Description

Chateau Violet is renowned for its finesse and the complexity of its wines has always aimed for a superior quality and found its place among the best growths of the Sauternes region.  An old and legendary estate, dating back from the end of the French revolution that was already listed in the 1855 Bordeaux classification  The wine has a reputation for elegance, fruitiness and remarkable balance  The vineyards are located in Preignac, about 25 miles south of Bordeaux on the left bank of the Garonne river, and are very diverse with mixed clay, gravel and pebbles soils that spreads over thirty distinct parcels.  The thirty acres vineyard is mainly planted with Sémillon grapes (95%) and also a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc (4%) and Muscadelle (1%).  The vines are about sixty years old and the yields are quite low.  Hand picked harvest is conducted through in October to pick the small bunches at the right stage of over ripeness or as known locally “noble rot”.Only sustainable growing methods with limited use of pesticides.

This wine has a beautifully espressive nose with a bouquet where candied fruit are enhanced by spices and vanilla. Concentrated apricot and peach fruit with notes of candied lemon. Long finish.

Try with blue-cheeses, foie gras and of course desserts.
