Description

A wine that you will be rewarded for cellaring, the Sichel Sauternes 2020 is a beautiful golden colour in the glass, with classic aromas of ripe apricots, pineapple, mango and honey. Remarkable complexity on the nose. The palate is smooth, rich and refined – balanced by the acidity which brings freshness.

The recommended drinking window is 2028 – 2030.

Maison Sichel was initially set up as a buying office in Bordeaux in 1883 and has very much remained a family business since then, with seven generations succeeding one another. The transformation from buying office to trading company to producer really took place with the acquisition of Chateau Palmer in 1938. Extremely dilapidated at the time, the Sichel family worked tirelessly to build the reputation of the estate, successfully cementing Palmer as one of the flagship estates of the Medoc today. In 1961 they acquired Chateau Angludet, in 2002 Chateau Argadens and most recently in 2020, Chateau Daviaud. Today, the total vineyard area under Maison Sichel spans 350 hectares.

Food matches: Try it with almond tart, cheesecake, foie gras or blue cheese.
