I don't consider myself very knowledgeable with regard to Sauternes, but I must say I was not as impressed with this older bottle as I had hoped to be, based on the vintage rating. The color was of nice dark honey, consistent with 13 years of rest. The nose was pleasant, but saw little intonation as it was opening in the glass. I paired it with a less salty Gorgonzola than I usually use, and this may have been a poor choice for this bottle. On net, it was very good, but not dazzling.
ok. not sure whether I expected more as I begin to taste through some of my 01s but thought this was pleasant but lacked the acidity to provide extra verve and life to the wine. flavor profile was ok but again nothing extraordinary.
