    Cuvée presentation

    The exceptional La Goutte d'Or cuvée has only been produced in 1947, 1990, and now in 2015. It is one of the world's rarest and most legendary wines. It is made in exceptional years, in times of truly uncommon richness in the sugar of the botyrised grapes. The 1990 contained 320 g of natural sugar. All of the grapes come from a single plot and are not sorted. This wine offers aromas of white fruits and quince, as well as a fresh palate of unparalleled refinement and freshness, with perfectly integrated sugars; its body is light, and its length exceptional. A truly remarkable wine.
