Château de Ricaud Loupiac, 2017

12.5% ABV


Category: France, BORDEAUX, Dourthe Vineyards, 2017

Often quoted as the gold standard in sweet wines since 1897, Loupiac is more than capable of standing its ground compared to its illustrious neighbours in Sauternes. Château de Ricaud Loupiac focuses on aromatic intensity, with a floral rather than sweet character, and lively and fresh on the palate.

Tasting Note

“Lovely golden hue. On the nose, aromas of quince, pineapple and dried apricots intermingle in perfect harmony. The wine is generous on the palate, while the acidity levels balance beautifully with the rich, sweetness. The freshness lingers on the lovely, full flavoured and perfumed finish.” Frédéric Bonnaffous, Dourthe Estates Director

Food Pairing

Perfect match with foie gras, white meat (poultry), fish (cod) and shellfish, asian dishes (sushis, maki and deserts such as mango and coconut rice sushi)
