A late harvest (no botrytis)ï¿½off-dry wine. Au Capceu isï¿½one of the best off-dry French wines out there and we believe Jean Marc Grussaute is truly a magician. This wine easily compares to some of the best Sauternes and other sweet wine produced in the world. Au Capceu means the top of the hillï¿½, and refers to a single vineyard the grown in. After pressing, the wine spends three days on skins, before being aged for eight months on leesï¿½in barrel and foudre (5% new oak).
Aromatics: Preserved mango and apricot, pineapple, hint of honey and saffron spices. Palate: An off-dry wine, with perfectly ripe mango, pineapple and apricot carried through to the palate. Amazing texture and freshness. The finish is minerally and balanced, negs for another sip. The length is incredible with flavour lasting forever.
