Chateau d'Arche Sauternes la Perle 2008

Member Review by terroir360:

2008 Chateau Perle d’Arche Sauternes One of the world’s most famous wines happens to be a sweet wine. Chateau d’Yquem, from the Sauternes region of France, is a legendary elixir that can age for many, many decades. Alas, it also has a legendary price tag. Many hundreds of dollars...for a half-bottle. And while some day you may be lucky enough to taste Chateau d’Yquem, whether through the grace of a generous friend, a lottery windfall, or divine providence, in the meantime you can enjoy a bottle of 2008 Chateau Perle d’Arche Sauternes. Comprised of a blend of Semillon with a portion of Sauvignon Blanc, this golden, sweet wine is the perfect end to a memorable meal. Though it pairs well will classic desserts like creme brulee, and is also a wonderful accompaniment to fruit-based desserts and sorbets, I think the best match is with a savory bit. Try Sauternes with the best blue cheese you can find. The strong, salty flavors of the cheese are tamed by the rich sweetness of the Chateau Perle d’Arche Sauternes.
