About This Wine
Sauternes is different from other sweet wines for two reasons. First of all, Sauternes has a unique interplay of soil, topography and microclimate which promotes the regular growth of Botrytis cinerea perhaps more than anywhere else. Second, the vineyards are harvested in several "waves" in order to pick only the most botrytised grapes each time.
