2001 vintage. This estate never disappoints and prices are reasonable. It shines in this great vintage with abundant botrytis, balanced by the nice acidity.

So beautiful! In a great place now, with the youthful ways giving in to maturity but perhaps just before the ethyl acetate of old Sauternes sets in. Acid, RS, botrytis, oak all in balance. Hold if you like, but it's ready!

It's a shame that wines like this aren't better appreciated. All you need is an apple, some cheese, crackers, a thin glass--an evening picnic inside or out. This is light, delicious, and has plenty of botrytis intrigue. I resolve to drink more Sauternes!

Gorgeous amber, interestingly quite dry for Sauternes. Mid-weight, beautiful botrytis, pineapple, melon. Drink now.
