Community Tasting Note

  • JS79 Likes this wine: 94 points

    July 4, 2020 - 67 PM tasting with Hans Astrom

    Delicious; floral perfume, apricot and honey marmalade palate.

    Drunk close to Climens 99 and both reminders of tragedy of sweet wines current fall from favour.

    Hans noted landmark vintage with new cellars

    7/4/20, 9:07 AM - Completely agree! Just in general people seem to drink fewer sweet wines at dinner parties/restaurant, fewer options on lists, which is a shame. I find them essential!

    7/4/20, 10:14 AM - Definitely essential! In '17 I did an entire 5 course dinner at Ch. Guiraud in BDX with each course accompanied by a different vintage of their Sauterne. Absolutely wonderful!

    ps....if you can find an '07 or '08 of this I highly recommend it!
