Tropical but fresh. Lengthy.

Tonight's foie gras and Sauternes tasting: my rank 2 of 4. Group no. 3. Light amber glow. Tight at first but unwinds to caramel aromas and hints of brininess. Stylish viscous mouthfeel with soft salted caramel flavors. Thick lingering finish.

先日の飲み残しのシャトー・ラフォリ・ペラゲ2001さん。ソーテルヌの当たり年とあってこの子もWA96点。3日目にとても良くなって、香りの力強さは薄らいだけど、トロリと甘く、それを支える適度な酸味。香りは砂糖漬けのパイナップル、桃、紅茶、スミレ?、カラメル、白い花。仕事の疲れも和らぐ。

Nose: Big and huge aroma of saffron, dried gooey white fig, honeyed vanilla, and some strange notes of new plastic. Palate: What was found on the nose seems to come through on the palate. Sweet finish that has no end.
