Tasted blind. Deep bronze, smells like very old Sauternes with caramel, saffron, brine, and some chlorine pool. Citric acidity with some orange, salty caramel, mostly digested sugar leaves a slightly bitter metallic finish. Reminds me of a '61 Suduiraut tasted last year, guessing this has to be a Sauternes of similar era.
LdC 4th Annual Truffle Dinner (Primehouse): Full deep golden color. Full nose of caramel with nutmeg spice and clear botyritis notes. Full tight caramel butterscotch with a hint of orange on the palate. Mild sweetness and good complexity. Interesting, but difficult to describe. 93-94 pts.
