Château Roumieu AOC Sauternes 375ML - France - $28.99

photo chateau roumieu chateau roumieu jp 8a4f4e6Chateau Roumieu is a family-owned property passed down from generation to generation since the 18th century. The name “Roumieu” refers to an important stage along the ancient pilgrimage route of “Saint-Jacques de Compostelle”, or St. James’ Way, back in medieval times – when “Roumieu” was used by the Moors to describe the Christians. A scallop shell, adopted as the Chateau’s emblem, features on the label, as “Saint-Jacques” is the French word for scallop.

The Château is located on the calcareous-clay plateau of Haut-Barsac, on the same terroir as the most prestigious Cru wines of Sauternes, with Climens (1st cru) and Doisy-Védrines (2nd cru) both adjoining the property.

Over the years, the Craveia-Goyaud family has committed to protect the unique character of the terroir. The vines are managed to irreproachable standards, guided by a sustainable viticultural regime and restricted yields. In order to make the finest wine possible, the grapes at Château Roumieu are painstakingly picked by hand one by one, in successive sweeps through the vine rows, with sometimes as many as 3-6 sweeps per block, picking only the grapes 100% affected by botrytis.

The wine is then slowly vinified and matured in oak barrels for 18 months.

This Sauternes is remarkable for its very fine, complex bouquet with aromas of candied fruit, honey and acacia. On the palate, the wine reveals good structure and is wonderfully supple and fleshy.

Blend

20% Muscadelle, 35% Sauvignon Blanc, 45% Sémillon
