Prieure d'Arche Sauternes 2008 - 375mL
Prieure d’Arche is a vividly fruity and lively Sauternes that is intended for current enjoyment. It is made from 15- year-old vines at the Chateau d’Arche estate. The Chateau has one of the finest terroirs in Sauternes, and is classified as a Second Growth. It is located on a hill above the village of Sauternes on gravel and limestone-clay soil that is ideal for ripening and the development of botrytis. Pieure d’Arche is a blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are all hand harvested at a yield level of 20 hectolitres per hectare in three passes through the vineyard. The wine ferments in stainless steel tanks and then ages for six months in 2-year-old barrels. It is bottled after one year. Prieure d’Arche combines the richness, finesse, and vivacity of a great Sauternes and represents outstanding value for the appellation.
