Sauternes, Chateau Gilette, Creme de Tete 1979
1979 Vintage Sauternes from Chateau Gilette.
Chateau Gilette is an interesting house as the wines are released after many years of ageing, these dessert wines spend a long time in concrete vats (up to 25 years!).
Because of this, there is much less risk of buying this 1979 vintage versus other Saunternes produced from the same year.
Excellent as a gift for anyone born in 1979.
Beautiful 40th Birthday gift!
