The dessert wines from Domaine de l’Alliance are nothing short of spectacular. When you uncork a bottle from Daniel and Valérie Alibrand, you know you are about to experience the fruits of the labor of dedicated farmers who are willing to put everything on the line to create something sensational from what their land and the vintage have to offer.
    In 2009, a small plot dedicated to Sauternes production experienced a remarkable onset of Botrytis, the “noble rot” responsible the most exquisite dessert wines. By the time of harvest, the grapes were so concentrated and the yields so low that only 430 bottles were produced of this nectar. Honeyed, richly fruity, and boasting a fascinating smoky complexity, this decadent dessert wine is truly stunning. –Anthony Lynch
