Located just across the river from Barsac, Loupiac is a great source of good value sweet wines. Most chateaux here make simple late-harvest wines, but Loupiac-Gaudiet employ a riskier strategy and wait for botrytis to arrive and turn their sweet wine into something extraordinary. The results are far closer to Sauternes than many wines from this appellation, whilst retaining Loupiac’s inherent delicious freshness. The Chateau fully deserves its reputation as the premier property in the region.
Tasting Notes: This is a lusciously sweet, rich and full wine. It has aromas of ripe peaches and blossom with just a hint of marmalade. The taste is a delicious balance of freshness and ripe oranges with suggestions of sweet spice.less
