Cocktail hour at Christie's hosted by the Friends of Notre Dame in the effort to help raise money for the cathedral's restoration. The wines were artfully curated by @Noah May.
The third of the wines served was this exquisite Sauternes that burst with apricots, honey and orange peel. Sometimes I wish I had the occasion to drink dessert wines more often. This was one of those moments.

Apricot nectar, honeysuckle, tangerine, glazed dried fruits and marmalade. Expressing such balance, a joy to drink

Amazing. Honey, beeswax, dried fruit. High acidity balanced with the sweetness. Yummy

Delicious, honeyed apricot. Orange flower water but not cloyingly sweet. Good acidity.

Beautiful way to end the night. Coravined bottle and still fresh as daisies.

Both Sauternes were beautiful with notes of green apple although this one was a little sweeter. Paired excellently with the biscotti.

Nectarine, mango, honeysuckle. Not so buxom as the 03 and 09. Lovely.

Sweet ending to a wonderful day...sweet being the operative word...sweet beauty from the Carmel coloration to the honey, pear, white flower nose...honey pear apricot on the palate as well as the wonderful noble rot one would hope and expect. Beautiful long finish. A perfect way to close out the weekend.
