Product Description:

"80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are hand harvested through three passes, and yield a tiny 20 hl/ha. The wine ferments in stainless steel tanks and then ages for six months in 2 year old barrels. It is bottled after one year. Prieuré d’Arche combines the richness, finesse, and vivacity of a great Sauternes and represents outstanding value for the appellation. 13% alcohol. Prieuré 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 Château d’Arche estate. The Château 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. " -Importer
