Winemaker Julie Médeville, has become one of Bordeaux’s young stars, thanks to offerings like this lush, pineapple-scented Sauternes.
What You Need To Know
Bordeaux’s Sauternes region sets the standard for sweet white wines. Made chiefly from the Sémillon grape, Sauternes owes its luscious, honey-tinged flavors to a beneficial mold that intensifies the fruit’s sugars. When crushed, each berry yields just a few drops of incredibly concentrated, supersweet juice. The result is wines with staggering longevity and, just as important, enough natural acidity to keep them from tasting cloying. This example comes from Château Les Justices, a small Sauternes estate owned for generations by the Médeville family and its ancestors. For its single cuvée, up to eight selective harvests are taken though its vineyards, with only perfect bunches of grapes culled each time.
