Apricots and smooth honey come through strongly in this beautiful wine. It has a rich texture, and accents of sweet spice are lifted by a shot of lemon zest.

Château Filhot was founded in 1709 by Romain de Filhot and is now owned and managed by one of his descendants: 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.
The hillsides face towards the south or the south-west and consist of gravels, clay and sand on a calcareous base. They are bordered by the Landes forest and are crossed by the Ciron River which creates the ideal microclimate for the development of the botrytis cinerea on the grapes. Matured for 2 years in barrel and vats
