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

This bottle seemed a little too advanced.

Best Sauternes I've ever had, of course with a tag like 1st Grand Cru I kind of expected it. With 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon this wine drinks like liquid gold. Will just get better with age.

10 year check in. Baby, needs a lot of time.

My palate was shot by time I reached this, but the honey unctuousness just pulled me into its warm blanket embrace.

Tonight's foie gras and Sauternes tasting: my rank 1 of 4. Group no. 1. Straw color was lightest of the group. Slight Madeira aroma loiters with honeycomb and flint. Elegant and rich with plump raisins and poach pears. Oily finish lingers with slightest minerality.
