Roborel De Climens - 2017 Finition Sauvignon

A French artisanal single malt whisky created by Aymeric Roborel de Climens, an ex-oenologist and winemaker who worked for more than 20 years with renowned producers in Bordeaux. These whiskies are 100% French from beginning to end, using their old family distillery, and all the resources have been sourced from within the country. With his experience in the wine industry, Aymeric selects the best barrels from each winery for aging (from six to eighteen months), creating a nuanced identity for each release. He's been using mainly Cognac, Merlot and Sauternes barrels, but recently has created a whisky aged in Banyuls barrel (similar to a sherry cask), and has partnered with a Muscadet producer to use their amphorae, creating something really special and rare. These whiskies appeared in Australia for the very first time in late 2020 – in tiny quantities. Be quick.

Aymeric's limited edition 2017 Finition Sauvignon was distilled in 2017 and bottled in May 2020 after a finish in rose casks. The Sauvignon casks were sourced from Clos Floridene, a house famous for their white bordeaux. With a subtle cask influence, this spirit boasts a stunning oily texture and incredibly fresh flavours of apple, orange peel and green grass. So graceful, and unique. Relax in your leather armchair and contemplate the meaning of life. Only 750 bottles produced.
