On the palate, it displays a velvety texture and a harmonious balance between the wine’s sweetness and lively acidity. The flavors unfold layers of dried fruits, candied orange peel, honeyed almonds, and a hint of vanilla. The wine finishes with a lingering, honeyed sweetness. Château Cantegril Sauternes 2018 is a versatile wine that pairs exceptionally well with various desserts and cheese. It is an excellent companion to foie gras, blue cheese, crème brûlée, fruit tarts, and poached pears.
