Château Hallet Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2005

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

If you've always shied away from trying Sauternes because of the price, be sure to pick up a bottle of the Château Hallet. 2005 was such a spectacular vintage that this bottle can compete with wines at twice and three times the cost! Sweet honey, caramel and stone fruit flavors abound. Go wild and try pairing with savory duck, bleu cheeses or souffles, or go conventional and pair with fois gras, custards or fruits.

A bargain in Sauternes, with essences of fresh honey, lemon curd, a hint of vanilla and the perfect amount of acidity to keep it lively. A quintessential match with foie gras, bleu cheeses, and many desserts.

With delicate aromas of honey, citrus, crystallized fruit and acacia, it makes a good match not only for desserts, but also for foie gras, roasted meats and blue cheeses. It makes a delicious aperitif when served chilled. 100% Sémillon. 375 ml bottle
