"Brilliant, honeyed and with some lovely citrus and passion fruit aromas. A wonderful wine, very well balanced and with perfect acidity. Now where is that Roquefort...."
Without doubt Château Filhot is among the very finest estates in Sauternes. Its architecture, completed just after the French Revolution, is a neo-Louis XVI extravaganza that’s equal to the majesty of the estate’s wines. Made from a combination of rigorously hand selected Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, misty conditions created by the proximity of the river Garonne create conditions ideal for the growth of Botrytis essential for the production of Sauternes.
