From 750 ml with low shoulder levels, obvious seppage. Dark color like Coca-Cola, and the cork crumbled upon opening. Very nice aromatics upon opening and held up for hours after. Very concentrated wine with good sweetness, some fig, brandy and tropical fruits apparent in the long finish. Not the most complex Sauternes, but the aromatics alone made this special. Plenty of life in this wine, and a real treat.
Magnums for Dave (Jean-Georges - New York, NY): My notes were quite brief by this point in the evening. Lots of spice on nose with plenty of candied fruit as well. Vibrant and bright, lots of energy all the way through to finish. Really interesting and wonderful.
