Red Burgs (Wayzata, MN): Medium dark gold color, PNP, 2 oz pour. Delightful as usual! Fresh and bright with tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, passion fruit, hints of petrol. The palate is lush and honeyed, not heavy, balanced, petrol, tropical, pineapple, nectarine, orange, glides across the palate. 94pts.
Love this wine. Brought it to my wine group's dinner at Two Chef. Perfect ending to the meal -- sweet but not cloying, taste of apricots. Surprisingly most of the guys guessed it was a Sauterne or Barsac. Other wine highlights (from memory): 1982 Leoville las Cases (spot on), 1986 Talbot (years of life ahead), 1988 Dunn Howell Mountain (thought it was a barolo), 2005 Louis Latour Corton Charlie and 2005 William Fevre Grand Cru Chablis Bougros, 1999 Nicholas Feuillatte Palme d'Or
