Château Delmond is made from slightly younger vines, resulting in a fresher, lighter style, yet with the complexity and luscious feel of good Sauternes. 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.

About the region and producer

Jean-Christophe Barbe studied at the University of Bordeaux and did his thesis on noble rot, the botrytis that makes Sauternes so special. Today, he instructs the youth of Bordeaux in winemaking while running the family property. In addition to Jean-Christophe Barbe's award-winning Sauternes from Château Laville, he also produces his second Sauternes label, Château Delmond, which is sourced from younger vines and cooler parts of the vineyard.  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. Jean-Christophe Barbe's vineyards are located in the commune of Preignac. He has 13 hectares which all qualify for Sauternes status.
