The Story

Château de Malle was owned by the Lur Saluces family (previous owners of d`Yquem) from 1702 through to 1950. Château de Malle is now owned by the Comtesse de Bournazel, who took up the reins after the premature death of her husband in 1985. This large 2ème Cru Classé estate consists of 55 hectares of vineyards, of which 27 hectares are found in the communes of Preignac and Fargues in Sauternes. 

 

Château de Malle's wine is typically a blend of 75% Sémillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are hand-harvested in several "tries" and are then fermented, with the wine then being matured in small oak casks (33% new) for 30 months.

Since the mid 80s Château de Malle has been producing wonderful wines which display considerable intensity as well as marvellous purity of fruit.

Yellow colour with slightly golden hue. Aromatic character, ripe apricots and candied orange peel, elegant spiciness and hints of ripe citrus fruit in the background. On the palate rich with opulent sweetness, fine acidity and very good length. 93
