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.

Honey, honeysuckle, jasmine then fresh brightness. This isn’t profound, but it is beautifully balanced and enjoyably fresh. Excellent

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 ;)
