Château Padouën, based in Barsac, has a good 3 hectare site in Sauternes situated on a clay-gravel rise and surrounded by the great growths.
Padouën create a rich, concentrated, golden-coloured Sauternes that has notes of honey, dried apricots and almonds with some tangy acidity to add balance.
The proximity of the Cérons appellation to the river Garonne is the reason why such high quality sweet whites are made here. A Semillon based sweet wine that exhibits a nose of ripe apricots and honey with a rich palate and racy, palate cleansing acidity.

It is a wine that will develop interesting flavours with bottle age and will keep for up to 10 years. The wine is of an appealing golden colour, has a fresh aromatic bouquet, is full and fruity with a long aftertaste.
