Vintage: 2018

Bottle size: 37.5cl

Grape: 90% Semillon 10% Sauvignon Blanc

This Sauternes is pale gold in colour with fresh floral and stone fruit aromas on the nose. Apricot, honey and peach mix with citrus peel and creamy flavours on the palate. It is medium to full bodied with refreshing acidity to balance the lingering sweet finish.

Delmond was the name of Jean-Christophe’s grandfather who originally bought the property. The same amount of care that goes into Château Laville is used to make Château Delmond, with several passes through the vineyards at harvest to pick the perfect botrytised berries. "At least 80% of the blend is made from botrytis-affected grapes," says Jean-Christophe. The wine is a blend of predominantly Semillon with a small percentage of Sauvignon Blanc and is aged in tank for 18 months prior to bottling.
