An astounding sticky, nose of candied melon. Liquid pear and peach extract delivered on clouds framed by whispers of lemon and lime zest. Among the best Sauternes I’ve had, and the stuffing to improve for at least 10 years. Thanks, John @tavernsquare, brilliant as ever!

Great complexity and intensity. The lack of acidity makes this #sauternes a touch cloying. Plenty of life left. #chateaurieussec #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine

Posting out of order, because it's just that good. Nothing short of liquid sunshine. Thanks as always to my boy Ralph for another fantastic bottle.

Powerful & thx to my homeboy for opening- I remember when it was a wee sauterne, now such a big boy. Roast pineapple, bass notes of Spanish peaches ( yup, eating them now & they are different), treble notes of mature kiwi etc.?.

Gorgeous colour. Adolescent sauternes--brown sugar, honey, fresh grape nose. Lovely, perhaps 5-10 years more of life.

Some say Sauternes have an awkward phase around the 5-10 year mark. I say nectar is nectar. Drink this sticky stuff with your mouth and enjoy!
