    September 15, 2019 - Wow! This has really come into its own since I last tasted it 6.5 years ago! Deep orange, almost brown hue. Nose of burnt honey. Rich, viscous texture with plenty of stewed orange on the palate. Delicious and drinking very well!

    July 17, 2019 - Super delicious, sophisticated and elegant. In a nice spot at this stage of development. I love the light sweet profile that's not overdone or cloying.

    June 25, 2019 - Notes of honey, apricot, tropical fruit and a bit nutty. Pleasant acidity and a medium finish. Drinking well now though I’ll hold my other bottle (375) through at least its 20th birthday,

    June 4, 2019 - A little sad that this is was my last bottle. Just as magnificent as a year ago, even a notch more complex. I see that several of my CT friends still have some so I will need to get schmoozy with them ;)

    May 1, 2019 - Drinking beautifully right now, This bottle turned light amber and displayed wonderful flavors of sugary tropical fruits and spices. Love it. Ours are 375 ml bottles.

    (Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sauternes) Rich nose, very suggestive of fatness to come, with great floral-edged honey and botrytis aromas. Obviously youthful. Huge weight on the palate, which is weighty, rich and creamy. This does have a very fat, opulent style, but with correct acidity. Wonderful presence on the palate, but it does need some time for the complexity to develop.
