This noble manor and its vineyards were once called Doizic, and during the middle of the 17th century, belonged to Jean Raymond, a Registrar with the Guyenne Borard of Excice. Tasted several vintages recently. Beautiful nose of ripe sweet fruit and complex spice. On the palate aromatic flavors of peach & apricot emerge with citrus zest and sweet spice. Still tasting great, sweet and fresh. Lingering finish ending pleasantly fresh and sweet. Good value. Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago
A top year mature white Bordeaux Graves that always hits the spot but @ £50-£70 it’s not cheap 😎 it’s a love/hate depending if you like the gravelly aged white heavy mineral driven blend 😉

I’m training for the NYC marathon and haven’t been posting so much - apparently, despite my arguments to the contrary, drinking a bottle of wine doesn’t count as carb-loading...
I opened this three (3!) days ago and today it’s singing. Definitely age-worthy or suggest decanting young. Seriously. This is vintage is 100 percent Sauvignon Blanc and spends some time in oak. Incredible richness and tropical fruit flavors with a distinct minerality. The acid is quite strong and honestly was almost overpowering on day one for my taste. But it kept getting better with some time open. As good as this is today, I can’t wait to try it again in 2 years. — 17 days ago

De très haute qualité, ce vin est riche en saveur et en découverte. Une robe jaune avec un nez plein d’arômes. On sent très bien le fruit sec, l’amande et des notes d’épices. En bouche, une fraîcheur et longueur. Délicieux !

An astounding sticky, nose of candied melon. Liquid pear and peach extract delivered on clouds framed by whispers of lemon and lime zest. Among the best Sauternes I’ve had, and the stuffing to improve for at least 10 years. Thanks, John @tavernsquare, brilliant as ever! — 9 days ago
