Deep gold with pronounced aromas of ripe fruits, honey, currants and floral notes on a rich sweet nose. On the palate flavors of pure honey, apricot, baked apple, raisins and sweet vanilla. Rich full-bodied, syrup like, Botrytis at its best. Long finish, vivid acidity, luscious, great to drink now. Tasting Sample.

Luckily I got this for free. This is just a bad wine in a difficult year. Tastes like nail polish.

Jack & Arden put together a wonderful evening of delicious food and great wines, and a few of us attendees contributed some bottles to enjoy as well. Great night!

Served blind. Quintessential Sauternes. I guessed late ‘90s. Honeyed marmalade, honeycomb, toasted scone and apricot preserves.

Beautifully fresh and lifted. Bright honeyed fruit with honeysuckle and white flowers. Great balance and underpinning acidity.

I love it old, but MAN, does impatience have its rewards!

Making Sauternes is just crazy difficult I give the extra-credit for the effort. Certainly not at Ch. d’Yquem levels of concentration but still loaded with tangerine, crême brûlée, mango, and savory herb. A great choice if you don’t want to spend for kings.
