What the Critics say
A vin liquoreux of complex style, with notes of candied fruits, honey, wax and mild spice. Ample and balanced on the palate, with a velvety sucrosity and attractive power. The botrytised or dessicated grapes are handpicked with several sorting stages from mid-October to mid-November before being pressed and left to settle. A long slow alcoholic fermented in barriques takes place during the winter. Ayguets can be drunk young, but sweet wines age well for 10 years or more.
