The Sauternes Château Lamothe Guignard is a white French liqueur wine grape varieties Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.
The uniqueness of this sweet white wine is due to its special processing: the Botrytis cinerea - a fungus - is allowed to attack the berries and to develop a noble rot on the peel, favored by the climate generally hot region of alternating conditions humidity caused by the morning dew or sparse rainy phenomena. The mold Botrytis cinerea makes permeable the skin of the berries in order to evaporate part of the juices and retain the sugars, increasing the levels.
Though legend has it that the origin of the production of Sauternes is the result of a fortunate coincidence, today nothing is left to chance. The harvest is delayed because the mold only attacks the ripe grapes and the harvest takes place in several steps to get the right concentration of sugars in the berries. This gives you a Sauternes extremely balanced, with beautifully balanced acidity, the sweetness.
This sweet white dessert wine for its complex structure is suitable to be paired with foie gras and little white bread - Sauternes melts and cancels the oiliness of the liver-or with blue cheeses, whose hot and spicy taste is moderated by the sweet wine.
