Chateau d'Armajan des Ormes Sauternes 2016

Sauternes, Graves, Bordeaux, FranceThe brothers Jacques and Guillaume Perromat are 6th generation vintners at Chateau d'Armajan des Ormes at Priegnac, in the middle of Sauternes. The 65/30/5 semillon/sauvignon blanc/muscadelle blend results from five successive passes through the vineyard, searching for prized botrytised bunches. The wine is barrel aged for 24 months, adding extra complexity to a lush dessert wine. Look for candied citrus and peach flecked with honey and butterscotch. Undervalued and underrated, this is a terrific introduction to Sauternes at a modest price.Tasted: 05 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 375 BCLS AB 29.95 select private retailers ON 28.95 LCBO Producer: Château d'Armajan des OrmesDistributors: Waldorf Wine Group Inc.
