I served with a blue cheese plate and a spicy plum chutney I purchased from a local winery (the wine maker recommended the pairing). it was delicious and a crowd pleaser
I recommend the pairing

I love sauternes with a cheese plate for desert

I have convinced my friends how great this is
and now I need to find some more sauternes

opened a bottle with our local grown Ribeye steak. I know it was a big dinner which was meant for Sunday. The wine was great with dinner. I guess it could go to 2035 but with a good streak I think it is great now

another broken cork, my wines are stored in a cellar with all the right conditions

I like Ramey but will not buy anymore until they fix this problem

another busted cork, this happens a lot with the Ramey's I have been trying that are 10+ years old. I hope they fix this. I wine is not flawed but the cork floating adds more tannin than I like

flawed! I think this settles it for me about screw top vs cork. smells and tastes like metal. not good. worse than a corked wine
