Château du Cros Loupiac 2016 – All the Lusciousness You Love in Sauternes but at a Fraction of the Price

Château du Cros, Loupiac 2016, France, Wine Casual

Château du Cros, Loupiac 2016, France

Tasting Note: A sweet Bordeaux that has all the lusciousness you love in Sauternes but at a fraction of the price from the under-the-radar, Loupiac region of France.

Deep-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, pronounced-intensity nose of dried apricot, pineapple, orange marmalade, mango and stewed apple with hints of lychee and white peach.

On the palate the luscious, full-bodied sweet Bordeaux has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with a mouthcoating body supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with an apricot-infused, long finish.

The wine is heaving with complexity and plushness across the entire length of the taste.

Substitute this wine for dessert or mix with sparkling wine for a fresh aperitif.

Bottle Note: Semillon, Sauvignon, Muscadelle. Grand Vin de Bordeaux. Vignobles – Michel Boyer. Loupiac (Gironde) France.
