Château Monteils Sauternes 2009 (Sweet Wine)
STARS IN THE SKY: An Explosion of Flavour
Someone once said that drinking sweet wine is the closest you can get to drinking the stars. Well, we don't really know what stars taste like, but if its like diamonds in the sky, then the Monteils Sauternes 2009 which is a blend of 75% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon, 5% Muscadelle is indeed a very elegant wine.
At Château Monteils, harvest is hand picked with several selective pickings of the botrytised berries (a fungus pierces the skin of the grape, lowering its water content and thus increasing its sweetness: the berry's pain is our gain). After getting better and mellower for 18 months in oak barrels, the colour of this wine does indeed begin to look like the gold limpid stars of the sky.
Taken with the best desserts, whiffs of vanilla, honey, butterscotch and dried apricots will fill your mouth. If you are a TEA Connoisseur, the fragrant notes of the best Chinese White teas is unmistakable. Let it stay for just a second longer to get a slightly smoky undertone. Fireworks!
In your case, an explosion of:
