Hello Snooth!

Posted by Ronald Moreau, Jan 28, 2013.

I am looking for a sweet sherry for a dessert type wine, such as a pedro ximenez or something a little sweeter than Harveys bristol cream.  Any suggestions?

Hi Ronald, are you looking to have the dessert wine on its own, or served with ice-cream/other sweets after a meal?

PX is a fantastic choice, a bottle of Sanchez Romate's Cardenal Cisneros PX is a staple on my wine table. Lovely fig and toffee notes, rich flavours.

Sanchez Romate also have Oloroso and Iberia Cream sherry, so you try them all and figure out which level of richness you'd prefer.

I could think of many suggestions but it depends on whether you want to drink it on its own or with food;and which food

How about French Dessert Wines from Sauternes?

Have you tried any Sauternes at all?

Chateau Suduiraut is brilliant, but pricey.

Chateau Belingard / Monbazzilac is less expensive and in my humble opinion, it is excellent.

There is also Chateau Rieussec, which is pricey, but I do not think that it is as great as Wine Enthusiast, Wine Advocate and Wine Spectator rated its various was o.k on my palate but I rather buy Chateau Belingard, which is lighter in weight on the tongue but very lovely indeed, and purse-friendly!

I do buy all of the above, but as good financial guidance, I suggest CH BELINGARD to you!

There are others which I am also familiar with as regards Sauternes.

Let me know if you are interested in an expose!!!!
