Chateau Grillon 2002

Chateau Grillon, Sauternes 2002 In the nose there are dried apricots, hay and a bit of nuttiness. In the mouth the wine is moderately sweet, with moderate viscosity and a nice thread of balancing acidity. This was probably on the crest about 2 years ago and it would be best to drink up any remaining bottles sooner rather than later. The grapes are planted 50/50, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Mis en bouteille par Roumazeilles, proprietaires a Barsac 14% $15.89 at Bottle Barn, purchased quite sometime ago – a bottle that was rattling around in storage
