Domaine Belargus - Quarts de Chaumes Grand Cru "Roueres" sweet 2018
"Les Rouères" is one of the three plots originally listed in the decree creating the Quarts-de-Chaume appellation. The Belargus plot covers nearly 3ha of the area, exposed on the South-Eastern slope of the rump of Quarts-de-Chaume. In exceptional vintages only, they perpetuate the tradition and produce a sweet wine from this single plot.
Roueres is a sweet wine fermented and aged in oak barrels. The wine shows a complex structure, showing aromas of apricot, dried fig and hay. The sweet mouth has the roundness from the "pudding" sandstones and ends on a marked bitterness, typical of the soils of Chaume. 100% Chenin Blanc.
