January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind. Another wine that was hard not to get...quintessential Sauternes. Honey comb, honeyed nectarine and peaches, orange blossom. The acidity from this producer (being fairly low), in my experience, lends me to think these are best enjoyed on the younger side (15yrs) as opposed to others than can go 20+.

Weighty and powerful style of Sauternes. Slightly imbalanced. Loads of apricot, orange rind and dried mushroom--

Aromas of honey, orange peel, honeysuckle, chrysanthemum, and hint of white flowers. Acidity and sweetness are in harmony, with slight minty note that gives the lush and creamy palate a refreshing feel. This unclassified chateau situates right next to d’Yquem to the north, and is owned by the former M.D. of d’Yquem. Wine spends 3 years in 100% new French oak barrels. Great great value. Mind boggling that this can sell for less than $30.00.

Really nice honey, depth of flavor, sweet but not too sweet. Honeysuckle flowers, other herbal notes.

Deep gold en route to amber. Beach ball on the nose. A bit ponderous.
