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 exciting wines coming from Le Chai, our winemaking HQ in Castillon. It’s a modern interpretation 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. On hearing about this Sémillon, Jean-Marc Sauboua at Le Chai decided to try himself. Two thirds of the grapes are from a vineyard in the Entre Deux Mers. The rest are late harvested, botrytised Sémillon from Bordeaux’s renowned Loupiac. This portion had the full works – fermentation in part new barrels, five months’ ageing on its lees – but still the oak is subtle. With a toasty note and lemony zing, this white is tops with pork or salmon.
