Filhot Gold reserve 1998 Sauternes


Filhot Gold reserve 1998 Sauternes



A mature wine from the renowned Sauternes property of Château Filhot.

"Gold Reserve" 1998 is a light and elegant style. Not the sweetest of Sauternes but full of dried fruit and marmalade flavours. It is well suited as an aperitif or to partner rich savoury dishes such asrich pâtés, or cheeses (especially Roquefort).

If you want to use it as a dessert wine choose a light, fruit dish.


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. 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 fresher, fruitier and more suited to early drinking than most of its neighbours' wines

Varietals: Semillon
