Drinking this one just three years after the vintage, this is all fresh and crispy. The nose is Honeycrisp apple... On the palate, that apple gets really dry and crisp... Dried sage here too... Quite acidic which will be great for food pairings. — 10 days ago
Nose: apricots, peaches, sweet almonds
Taste: apricot, honey dew melon, something grassy, like it's (partially) underripened grapes
Mild acidity, very little residual sugar. Altogether lovely — 12 days ago
Cellar release bought from winery by my friend Lucille. So fresh and vibrant for a 24 year old wine. Really lovely. — 21 days ago
This wine is a red blend that is nice with soft tannins. Went well with roasted vegetables and rotisserie chicken — a day ago
Deep golden in color.
Strong nose of honeydew, citrus, lemons, honey, spices, melons, oranges, tangerines, tropical fruits and pineapples. A really beautiful nose.
Full bodied and buttery with high acidity.
Sweet on the palate with melons, red apples, honey, tropical fruits, spices, light earth, honeysuckle and white pepper.
Long finish with oranges and spices.
This is a fabulous dessert wine from Bordeaux, France.
Very complex with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.
Delicious right out of the bottle, good by itself, and even better after an hour of airtime.
Thanks Scott for sharing this with me.
This 19 year old is smooth and generous. Rich and extracted. Sweet and well balanced.
I've had the 2009 vintage not too long ago, and this is showing so much better. What a wonderful surprise.
Paired very nicely with the blue cheese. Drank from a 375ml bottle.
13.5% alcohol by volume.

2014 vintage. One of the last vintages of the late Denis Dubordieu who sadly passed away in 2016. This was a great year for Sauternes, combining lots of botrytis with high acidity. Refined perfume with dried apricot, almond, quince, orange peel and the typical roasted noble rot aroma. In the mouth it is very fresh with juicy acidity balancing the layers of dried fruits and a long lingering finish that leaves impressions of almonds and fresh mint. Gorgeous Barsac and reasonably priced. Abv. 13,5 %. — 15 days ago
No formal notes. I have several previous Delectable Notes here. You could easily think this was new world with the passion fruit and tropical fruit flavours. The oak maturation adds a creamy textural note. No point in further cellaring I would say but an easy drinking wine now. — 20 hours ago
Deep gold. Opulent, Sauternes-like nose of baked quince and vanilla. Bright acidity leads the medium full palate layered with citrus rind, vanilla, baked quince, and magnolia blossom adding a hint of balsam in the lengthy finish. "Elegant and refined" is an understatement! A wonderful Bordeaux Blanc for your main course of trout almandine, roasted fowl, or Tandoori salmon (to name a few). Drink now through 2027. — 10 days ago
