Tasting Notes

The fourth year this decade that Constance has been produced. The wine is a blend of 50% botytised fruit from Le Clos du Bourg, Le Mont and a tiny fraction from the outskirts of Le Haut Lieu. Polished, straw-gold appearance. Very restrained, with barely noticeable sweetness on the nose. Rich on entry; lush, with very good weight, texture and the juicy acidity which helps define this vintage. Excellent poise and balance. Persistent finish. A much more restrained Constance, but one that maintains and displays a sense of place

Reviews & Scores

Candied citrus, incredibly thick and dense and mouth-coating. The very definition of unspittability! Just wonderful – unctuous yet vibrant, full of fruit juiciness yet also bursting with complex caramel and honey flavours. 


Drink 2014-2024

TASTING NOTES

This offers clean citrus peel and dried apricot character, with light lavender and honey notes. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a clean, mineral finish. An elegant and refined sweetie that is very much like a delicate Sauternes. Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant, intense, rich and unctuous, this combines undoubted class with a little flamboyance too. Notes of peach, nectarine and sherbet with enough acidity to counter the sweetness, overlaying a deep, layered core and a mineral streak on the finish. This has you could possibly want from a top Sauternes. Chapeau to Lur-Saluces. Drink 2015-2030+. 18.5
