Listing Details

One 750ml bottle of the 4 Star - Rated 1986 Vintage of Château Filhot. Château Filhot is one of The World's Most Famous Sweet Wines, and it is Well-Deserving of its Reputation. The 1986 Sauternes Vintage has been rated 4 out of 5 Stars by Michael Broadbent . Here is what he says about the 1986 Sauternes Vintage , " 4 Stars - An Attractive and Abundant year for Dry White Bordeaux and another Classic Year for Sauternes . A Good Spring and a Very Successful flowering were followed by a Perfect Summer. " - Michael Broadbent . Château Filhot is one of the largest and most picturesque properties in Sauternes. It is located just north of the village of Sauternes in the far south of the appellation. In the late 18th century Thomas Jefferson judged Filhot the finest Sauternes after d`Yquem and the property enjoyed an illustrious reputation throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1855 it was classified as a 2ème Cru Classé. It was owned by the Lur-Saluces family from 1807 through to 1935. Today Filhot is owned and run by Comte Henri de Vacuelles. Filhot has 60 hectares of Vineyards and the Grapes are harvested in several Tries, with the Juice being fermented in temperature-controlled tanks. The Wine is then aged in a combination of tanks and Oak Barrels. Filhot has a High Percentage of Sauvignon Blanc (45%) in the blend as well as seeing comparatively little Oak in the maturation process. This means that Filhot is a slightly atypical Sauternes, being a Fresher and more Fruitier Style . This Rare Bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thanks for looking.
