Chateau D’Arche 1999

91 points

Sauternes. 14%

Low-ish acid and a touch heavy on alcohol but I’m being harsh. It’s difficult to fault this wine which is drinking very well at 11 years of age and at a reasonable price. Sure it doesn’t hit any high notes but it’s still a class above 90% of the world’s sweet wines by being much more than simply sweet.

Nice little touch of formic acid and coconut oak.
