Château de Ricaud Loupiac, 2017

ABV: 12.5%
Region: Bordeaux
Country: France
Producer: Dourthe Vineyards

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.

Description

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.

Alain Thiénot fell under the wine’s charm when tasting the 1929 vintage and bought the property in 1980. Château de Ricaud Loupiac focuses on aromatic intensity, with a floral rather than sweet character, and lively and fresh on the palate. It has made its name as a benchmark in Loupiac, and it is not without good reason that several journalists have referred to it as the “Yquem of the Right bank”.

Grape

HVE3 and Terra Vitis certified (High environmental value certificates)

Ageing: 12 months in oak barrels (20% of which are new).

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)
