More advanced color, nose, and palate then anticipated. Lacked freshness but there were incredible caramel, orange, roasted tree fruit, and honey notes. Structure was a little loose. Of course beautiful with #foiegras though. #chateaudyquem #sauternes #semillon #sauvignonblanc #noblerot #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine
