Drink this instead of dessert, not with it! Lovely smooth spice, great gold color. Could put away for years more and it'll only get better. — 3 years ago
A deep golden hue with honey, peaches, and floral notes on the nose. This is a decidedly standard Sauternes, which is to say it’s wonderful. Sweet, almost to the point of excess but not quite, with something of an elegant mouthfeel. A little spice on the mid palate. Oranges, peach cobbler, apricots, white pepper, and honey. Long finish with even more sweetness. Not the most complex Sauternes I’ve ever had but who cares, this is too much fun to drink. — 3 years ago
Floral, orange peel & passion fruit aroma, candied orange syrup on the tongue, passion fruit finish. Citrus notes balance the sweetness nicely. — 3 years ago
January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.
Another wine that was hard not to get...quintessential Sauternes. Honey comb, honeyed nectarine and peaches, orange blossom. The acidity from this producer (being fairly low), in my experience, lends me to think these are best enjoyed on the younger side (15yrs) as opposed to others than can go 20+. — 3 years ago
So we drank this on a root day and it was really good but not outrageous especially for the price. Drinking at 10 years was also probably not the smartest decision 😬. But it was one of those rare convivial evenings where a dessert wine was the perfect finish! — 3 years ago
