Château Filhot Sauternes Crème de Tête 1990

Member Review by Nicki:

Tasted May 2008: Known for being one of the best Filhots of the last decades, this is indeed a very good wine. Lovely deep yellow colour with a touch of gold, yet not as deep as other 1990 Sauternes. In the bouquet and the taste, the major characteristics are elegance, balance and great purity. Moderately sweet, with excellent counterbalancing acidity, rather light but intensily flavoured. A true-to-type Filhot, delicious to drink by itself. Will keep for another decade.

Château Filhot:
The Château FILHOT was fonded in 1709 by Romain de FILHOT and is now owned and managed by one of his descendants: count Henri de Vaucelles. The estate covers an area of 350 hectares with 62 hectares of vineyard all along the south of the Sauternes village in the Sauternes appellation.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
