Description

Not exactly the new kid on the block, Château Lamourette has been making wine under the same name in Sauternes since 1860. During the 147 years of its existence, it has been the Leglise women that have done the bulk of the winemaking at Lamourette. The area, or lieudit, where Château Lamourette is located is actually called „La Mourette.’ Anne-Marie‟s grandfather put the two words together on the label until 1955 and she decided to do revive the tradition in 1980. Like all Sauternes, harvest takes place after Botrytis, known as “Noble Rot,” has set in, leaving the grapes dry and full of sugar. The harvest typically begins in mid-to-late September and continues on in three or four parts to allow all parcels time to let Botrytis run its course. The average age of the vines at Lamourette is 35 years and all of the vines are located on sandy-clay earth that lies on top of a granite layer.

TASTING NOTES

A deep honeycomb richness. Sweet and luscious, brimming with dried stone fruits, marmalade and honeysuckle

FOOD PAIRING

A sweet, delicate wine that retains its freshness. Works well with a simple roast chicken but also spiced dishes (ginger and curry) and blue cheese. Also pair with the classic combination of foie gras and fruity and nutty deserts (but not too sweet!).
