Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and well-rounded
With its shiny yellow colour, this wine offers you a beautiful, frank and open nose of white chocolate, yellow fruits, quince paste, then beeswax. In the mouth, it presents a nice balance, frank, with body, envelope and fat. Nice character on the yellow fruits, a hint of cumin spice, candied ginger and white pepper.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

one of the most beautiful residences in the region.

The Clos du Ciron estate is located in the commune of Bommes in the Sauternes appellation.
It extends over 24 hectares in a single block crossed by the river Le Ciron. This river is at the origin of the mist created in the autumn, which allows the Cinerea botrytis fungus to grow,
on the grapes in order to concentrate the sugar content of the grapes and thus produce the Sauternes wine.
