Romer du Hayot 1985 - Sauternes
Label: Stained and worn but beautiful
Overall condition: Very good
Second classified growth of 1855, Château Romer du Hayot is far from being the most famous of the Sauternes.
This small vineyard of "only" 15 ha produces between 10,000 and 30,000 bottles of Sauternes per year depending on the quality of the vintage. The estate also produces white and red wines under the appellation "Graves".
The grape variety has evolved a lot since the early 2000s. Going from 70% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon and 5% Muscadelle to 90% Semillon, 10% Sauvignon.
Located in the town of Fargues, the terroir is clay-limestone and gravelly.
As with many Sauternes and sweet wines, this Romer du Hayot can be tasted today or wait for many more years if kept in the right conditions.
