ALIENOR 2010 LATE HARVEST SAUVIGNON BLANC LAKE COUNTY 500mL

ALIENOR is a tribute to Aliénor of Aquitaine and to the substantive contribution she made to the fine wines of Bordeaux. As Queen of England, Aliénor shared the sustaining traditions of her native Aquitaine by turning vast areas of France, among them the region of Bordeaux, into English territory. During her reign, grape production and wine export, already an important part of everyday life in Bordeaux, grew to levels unequalled before or since.

In charge of winemaking is world-reknowned winemaker Denis Malbec. Denis might be most famous for his time spent making wine at Chateau Latour in Bordeaux, and he also fashios the high-scoring wines at Kapcsandy in Napa Valley.

Lune de Miel translates to "moon of honey". As the name implies, this is Alienor's dessert wine. This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc affected by Botrytis (a mold that concentrates the grapes' sugars), and is the spitting image of what you find in Sauternes or Barsac. Unctuous, rich, and compelling, the wine smells and tastes of honey, creme brulee, marzipan, marmalade, marshmallow, and fresh lemon bars.
