Château Cru D'arche Pugneau

Cru d'Arche Pugneau is an unclassified Sauternes estate, but its vineyards lie in close proximity to several big name estates--d'Yquem, Suiduiraut, Lafaurie Peyraugie and Rabaud Promis. It's a glorious deep gold color with viscous "legs" that coat the glass. It's almost too thick to swirl. The nose offers up rich notes of apricots with their peels plus a more delicate air of spring flowers. There is a heavy dose of botrytis, creating a slightly bitter note on the palate. This wine would be better with a little bottle age, but it's still drinking nicely and is a good accompaniment for the excellent dessert--Viognier-macerated apricot and goat cheese gratin. It was the perfect choice to end the Tasters' Guild meal at Cosmo's Cucina. – Description from mriskic
