37.5cl * 12.5% ABV * Sauternes, France

This little known property produces delicious wine, sometimes startlingly good. Despite being in Bommes, its style is sometimes reminiscent of good Barsac, with elegance and finesse to the fore, rather than sheer richness and power. It also displays a marked floral bouquet. The 2005 has been chosen by the Conseil Interprofessionel des Vins de Bordeaux to represent Sauternes in promotional tastings. The vineyard runs to 10 ha of old vines, planted with 90% Sémillon, 4% Sauvignon and 6% Muscadelle.

Most of the Sauvignon is used for dry white wine. Barrel ageing has only been used from 2001 and the 2005 is already quite delicious. The objective has always been to conserve the maximum aromatic complexity. The yield is never more than 13hl/ha. Anne-Marie Leglise, in direct succession of ownership from mother to daughter since 1860, runs Lamourette with talent and passion – she also makes a rather good 100% Merlot red Graves.
