A rare occasion when we have a stickie - delicious honey, grapefruit essence; medium amber color

Tonight's foie gras and Sauternes tasting: my rank 4 of 4. Group no. 2. Overbearing musty aroma blows off eventually, but tainted my initial impression. Lean body and a bit sharp. Still delicious despite the minor faults.

MAN '88 Sauternes are drinking good now. This is spectacular - hard to pinpoint any one thing, creamy tropical fruit/melon, bright spice, exotic citrus, some cooked cakey thing, yowza. D'Yquem, Schmyquem. Went great with larks' tongue in aspic.

Hints of orange. A bit over aged but still delicious and sumptuous.

Well if you must eat Foie gras then this isn't too shabby of a wine to chase it down ;)
