The Bouche d’Or displays a succulent nose of apricots, honey, almond paste, (vaguely remniscent of Beerenauslese) that greets the senses and opens to lovely aromatic terpenes. While Bouche d’Or may be sweet, it also has a bright acidity and crispness to it. This wine can stand on its own as a dessert wine and makes a great accompaniment to a cheese course. Hard, salty cheeses like Manchego, and Aged Gouda pair quite successfully. Less-sweet desserts like lemon meringue tart, grilled peaches or apple galette are excellent choices.
