What a pleasant surprise. Bought as futures, one owner, perfect cellaring. Dark yellow color. Powerful, full-bodied Sauternes. Well-balanced. Unctuous and silky on the palate with a long, long finish. Drink now or hold for quite a few more years. Drank with Roquefort and Point Reyes blue cheese and Tiramisu.
Strange that the same wine can taste different even 6 weeks later. Same long caramel, but served slightly colder and somehow better balance. Would prefer a bit more structure / acidity per rieussec 99 but overall very enjoyable.
A birthday treat. Deep brown-gold colour. Very long burnt caramel, but with quite a sharp (medicinal?) edge at the end. Left for 30 mins and the sweet fruit undertow had reasserted. Not sure about this one.
