A straw-gold to dark amber, depending on age.

Marked fruit, apricot, tangerine, tropical fruit occasionally, oak, vanilla and toasted aromas. Honey, hazelnuts and quince. Very complex.

Rich and oily, they are nuts, dried apricot, plum jam, spices, cinnamon, licorice, saffron and sometimes flowers. In general a combination of fruit and acidity with notes of mandarin marmalade. Sometimes a bitter taste that contributes to harmony. Long and mythical endless.

MATCHING
The spectacular nature of this wine makes it perfect to take on alone, although a potential so high that we're allowed to be used with contrasting pairings and dishes with fat mouth sensations. Ideal with foie, compotes and desserts choicest confectionery.
WHO CAN CONTRACT
He's a legend, and for many the best wine. Like all great wines, is the result of a series of natural circumstances, and above all, a very particular and meticulous preparation.
The property is extensive, is situated on a hill where the castle stands up to its name, 104 hectares planted with 80% Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc in the remaining 20%. All years are started approximately 3 acres of old vines, with the dual purpose of ground and rest the remains room for new plantings.
The terrain consists of a surface layer of sandy clay and gravelly limestone resting on a deep and great care is drained through a system installed in 1880.
At harvest time, a great team of people work for 6 to 8 weeks, as the harvest is carried out grain by grain, only the overripe, repeating this process 11 times in a single strain.
Within the magic of this wine, Lur-Saluces family never has explained in vinification operations. A very low yield per vine (which can be as 9-10Hl/Ha) attached to an upbringing more than three years in new oak barrels.
