  • Winemaker Notes Petit Manseng is one of the greatest sweet grape varieties. Its natural acidity balances the freshness and the sweetness of the wine. Being late-harvested, the overripe grape gives the wine flavors of candied fruits. Three different cuvees of sweet Pacherenc varieties are made, depending on the harvest time (October, November or December), and which names are from the French revolutionary calendar: Vendémiaire, Brumaire, Frimaire. The Pacherenc du Vic Bilh wines from Château Bouscassé are among the greatest sweet whites in the world.
  • Tasting Notes Harvested in November 2011 from botrytized grapes which have benefited from the autumn mists, the wine is a fine combination of intense acidity and super rich honeyed flavors. A tropical medley of pineapple, glazed mango, and apricot flavors; it's fresh and vibrant. Honeycomb and spice details linger into the creamy finish. It is ready to drink, although it will certainly age. The secret of the wine is its richness combined with fine acidity.
