The world’s best finish to a meal (or at anytime) and one of my all time favorite wines, luscious and rich with apricot marmalade, candied pineapple, acacia honey and a long, opulent and lingering creamy finish.

An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Young, but a real joy to see how impressive this is currently and to imagine how much of a monster it will be in 20yrs. Intoxicating nose that oozes of honey roasted cashews, orange marmalade, and honey coated mango. Very dense and rich in the middle right now, but it has the classic minute long finish already. I waffled between this being either ‘01 Rieussec or mid-‘00s D’yquem.

A lot of floral lift at the front. Wonderful drive and freshness through the middle. Definition, lemon curd, some saline. This is great and really long. Wow.

Gorgeous lemon tart, creme brûlée. This is luxurious, poised and sexy. All kinds of wonderful and detailed. Wow.

M’s bday dinner (11/12). Tasted blind. Dark gold, heavy. Notes of brown sugar, clove, tan spice, apricot, burnt orange, peach and a little honey. In the mouth this comes across as perhaps one of the richest Sauternes I’ve tasted. Big mouth feel. Layers of complexity as the acidity comes and goes but the richness is constant. Great finish to the evening.
