Château Pineau du Rey is a small property, bordered on one side by the Landes forest and traversed by the Ciron river. These factors produce the ideal conditions for developing the noble rot that’s essential for making Sauternes. Officially known as Botrytis cinerea, in autumn this sought after mould punctures the skin of the grapes, so they lose moisture. Flavours become amazingly concentrated, and gain complexity too. All the grapes are picked by hand, often with many sorties through the vineyard to harvest just at the right time. At Pineau du Rey, the vines are 35 years old, which adds to this wine’s concentration. A blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, this delectable Sauternes is divine with foie gras or a fruit tart.
