Very nice Sauternes with delightful balance of fruit, flowers, sweetness and unctuousness, plus sufficient acids to bring it all together. Quite a delicious sipper. This was the very last bottle of Sauternes I could find at my local BevMo in Santa Monica, and it was just a half bottle at that. I should really go back to the Wine House or Wally’s for my wine purchases but this tells me how under appreciated Sauternes is in the U.S. A pity.
I enjoyed the 2019 vintage with homemade chicken liver pâté on toasted brioche. — 10 months ago
Wonderfully funky, damp, like walking through wet, mossy woods on a gray fall day. Second day drinking reminded me of a damp, unfinished cellar. On closeout at Portalis... wonder if I could get another couple bottles? — 6 years ago
Blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Mourvèdre, aged in oak, Ruby with aromas of berry fruits, oak and pepper spice. On the palate flavors of cherry, blackberry and sweet raspberry with notes of oak, vanilla and leather. Smooth tannins, long finish ending with fruit, oak and pepper spice. Very nice. — 3 months ago
