    December 31, 2020 - Golden color, slightly viscous. Apricots and caramel. Paired wonderfully with foie gras in the cold barn venue.

  • Tim Heaton Likes this wine:

    May 24, 2020 - PnP from 750ml; fantastic, youthful color, solid fill. Pretty much everything one could ask for in a 30+ yr old Sauternes: fresh, balanced acidity/sweetness/long elegant finish. So classy. Seemed to be calling out for nuts and cheeses, but this was just great on its own, too. Drink now and the next 5-10 years; still in its preferred zone for my palate. 14,5% abv. recommended

    February 15, 2020 - Pleasant, rich, full, and tropical but with a fair amount of caramel. Late in the night and I was not making detailed notes at this point.
