Community Tasting Notes 14

  • Mike G Likes this wine: 90 points

    October 11, 2021 - Good fruit and acidity but lacks depth and elegance we were expecting. A very nice wine, hopefully it will develop further as it is very early in its drinking window. Paired very nicely with fresh baked apple pie.

    March 5, 2021 - En 375ml.
    Nez très expressif de fruit mûr, litchi, même un peu d’agrumes. En bouche, belle liqueur et concentration, de la fraîcheur, c’est bien équilibré et très prometteur. Un bel alliage de gourmandise et profondeur. Un infanticide, mais comme souvent, un bon sauternes donne beaucoup de plaisir à tout âge. 93+ pts

    September 22, 2020 - eye:
    Goud kleedt de Sauternes aan: oud goud, daarna amber goud. Na decennia krijgt de wijn een theekleur.

    neus:
    Botrytis cinerea brengt de beroemde "geroosterde smaak, gekonfijte aromas", zo fijn, zo subtiel, zo harmonieus gecombineerd met wijn. Het aroma vergroot amandel, kweepeer, citrus, sleedoorn, abrikoos, perzik, enz. Het aromatische spectrum van een sauternes is zonder twijfel de meest complexe Franse wijn.

    mond:
    Vol, vet, soepel en krachtig, het gehemelte combineert gekonfijte en geroosterde tonen met honing, bijenwas, witte bloemen, witte of gele vruchten (abrikoos). De geroosterde tonen geërfd van het vat dragen bij aan de elegantie van de grootste Sauternes.

    Wijn gerechten:
    Terrine of gebakken foie gras, gebraden kip, wit vlees met room, eend met perziken, fijne vis met room, kaas (roquefort), desserts (fruitsalade, appel charlotte, ananastaart).
