Botrytised or nobly rotten grapes make the world’s finest (and most expensive) sweet wines. Here, however, this golden white is totally dry, yet still complex with rich, honeyed and citrusy fruit. A most elegant creation from JMS and team at Le Chai.

Le C du Chai is typical of the exciting wines coming from Le Chai – our winemaking HQ in Castillon. It’s a modern interpretation by Jean-Marc of a luscious, dry, botrytised Sémillon that Tony Laithwaite made with Danish winemaker Peter Vinding-Diers 30 years ago. Peter was famous for transforming white Graves in the 1980s. Two thirds of the Sémillon is from a vineyard in the Entre Deux Mers. The rest is late harvested, botrytised Sémillon from Bordeaux’s renowned Loupiac. This portion had the full works – fermentation in part new barrels, with five months’ ageing on its lees – but still the oak is subtle. To lend freshness and balance, some grassy Sauvignon is added. With a toasty note and lemony zing, this white is top with pork or salmon.
