2010 Ch Petit Vedrines Sauternes - (375ml) - Bordeaux, France
The distinct taste of this intensely sweet wine is caused by the Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot. The misty climate of the Sauternes region is ideal for the mold to shrivel the semillion and sauvignon blanc grapes to raisins with a highly concentrated sugar content. Once you taste this nectar, you'll forget about the rather unappetizing reasons behind the flavor. Pair with foie gras for the most lavish experience.
