Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

A gorgeous Yquem. So balanced with amazing freshness and acid to its decedent, honeyed and floral layers. Still young of course, but already a stunner. — 6 days ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

NOSE: coconut cream, custard, nilla wafers, grilled pineapple, a little mango. Smells like typical aged Suduiraut!

TASTE: the vanilla cookie is strong with this one - plus tres leches. 93.

Sauternes is one of my preferred pairings with pumpkin pie and whipped cream. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
