Patrice Achard has perfected the art of making dessert wine and his St Aubin is no exception. Made from Chenin Blanc, in his Loire Valley domaine, he carries out three separate hand harvests to select the very best grapes. Each harvest is vinified and aged in separate casks, according not only to the harvest, but also to the plot of land where it was grown. The wine is aged on lees in chestnut barrels with weekly stirring.

In the glass

Beautiful gold colour with subtle, dried pear aromas. Elegant, complex, and spicy with ginger, dried fruit and confit characters. Wonderfully harmonious wine with a dry, smooth fruit finish.

Lusciously good

To top a Sauternes is hard to do but this for me does this... this organic, luscious sweet wine is so perfectly balanced with a bright acidity, that it is not at all cloying and remarkably elegant yet complex... for me it is particularly dangerous with blue cheese! Thank you for bringing this small production magic to our shores

Your review is so perfect - we often forget how good a dessert wine is with blue cheese! A beautiful and rare 1er cru classe. Divine. Thank you!
