Winery Notes:
Castelnau is a wine with a distinctive character for which the groundwork is prepared far in advance, even down to the choice of specific plots to give it its own unique identity.

Made from portions of the harvest that are expressive earlier than those used for Château Suduiraut, this wine with aromas of candied yellow fruit, quince, frangipani, mild spices and a hint of minerality is more approachable when young in terms of tasting than its elder.

Representative of the Sauternes winemaking tradition, its quality, elegance and sophistication make it a reliable choice for anyone who wants to treat themselves to a great wine, with confidence.
