Dark gold in color. Beautiful nose of lemons, citrus, spices, honey, butterscotch, carmel, hazelnut, mango, apricot and minerals. Full bodied, buttery and bold, with high acidity and nice legs. Sweet on the palate with citrus, lemon grind, oranges, honey, peaches, nuts, apricots and Mediterranean spices. Long finish with honey suckle and spices. This first growth sweet wine is a delicious one from Bordeaux. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Big and bold, sweet and well balanced. This one can be aged for a long long time, although it is so yummy now. This 2011 vintage was magnificent in Sauternes. Tasty, complex and delicious. I loved it. Robert Parker 95 points. A blend of 95% Sémillon, 3% Muscadelle and 2% Sauvignon Blanc. 14% alcohol by volume. 98 points. $90.

Wednesday Wine Committee. As always, wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert. One of the best out there. Honeyed apricot, pineapple, molasses, and marmalade. Hard to guess anything but Sauternes. Easiest guess if the day! ✔️

Lots of tropical fruit. Definitely a ripe expression of Sauternes - doesn’t quite have the complexity and acid-driven refreshing finish that I tend to love when present in Sauternes.

Classic nose of honey and fuel... surprised with a big grapefruit flavor. Warm honey. Thick, juicy and enjoyable.

Nose dominated by ripe honeydew, this was all so primary, just too young to strut its stuff as it undoubtedly will. Peach, pear and white flowers. Yum.
