Old vines with an average age of 35-40 years on sandy and clay gravel soils. This excellant Sauternes was crafted for Oriel Wines by Xavier Planty the legandry winemaker at Château Guiraud, one of the leading estates in Sauternes.

Unlike traditional wineries, Oriel doesn't own any vineyards. Instead, they find top winemakers in some of the best wine regions of the world and have them make wines from the best grapes they can find. Giving the wines their stamp of approval, Oriel then bottles the wines under their own label.

The undisputed king of France's wine regions, Bordeaux sits amidst and astride the rivers Dordogne and Garonne. Accounting for some 800 million bottles produced each year, Bordeaux has built its reputation on quality, with some of the world's most sought-after wines being crafted along the river banks. Bordeaux also creates a large amount of table wine, mostly sourced from the lesser of Bordeaux's 57 appellations. Bordeaux boasts over 10,000 winemakers. Known mostly for the red blends, Bordeaux also enjoys notoriety for its excellent sweet white wines, as well as several high-quality dry whites created mostly in the central regions between the two rivers.
