Crème brûlée, cashew brittle, caramel. Delicious, still fresh on the palate. Wish I had another bottle.

I know I know, it's young but Wine Advocate thought it was a 97 so I thought I'd take it home and see what this vintage is all about in the Sauternes department. Nice perfume to the nose - orange zest, papaya, and Asian pear, and honeysuckle. The pallet shows zippy but appropriate acidity, and light color of its youth - pineapple, apricot preserves, Meyer lemon, and a very faint hint of white pepper spice mixed with a soft mineral note. I definitely think this was a great vintage, but not quite a 97. I will say that I'd love to see this at its plateau. For 2nd Cru, this is outstanding in its value ($19.99 for the 375ml). Buy and lay away for a little while.

Superb, classic in all the ways it should be...perfectly gold color, a nose telling at first botrytis but then it gives way to more dimension with layers or orange marmalade, honey, and creme brulee. The palate reflects this and adds a touch of almond extract and a laser beam of core acidity. #sauternes

Madame of the Chateau was there in the Joanne booth at VinExpo who was charming but this wine just shined even without her presence. Tasted more of Climens in Barsac. Elegant and just grabs your attention...super lengthy finish!

While a slightly off vintage. A lovely classic Sauternes! Honeyed notes, dried yellow fruits, minerals. Lovely and complex! Layers and layers!
