I don't drink much Sauternes but maybe I should. This one was smokin'! Fat, hedonistic and civilized.

Bright dark golden color. Already almonds in the nose. Sweet, apricots, hints of lime zest. Paired so well with some tete de moine and Utrecht cheese.

Carmelized orange and apricot. It is no Yquem, but still darn good.

Haven’t had this one in almost 2 years. Still love it. Almonds, vanilla, baking spices. Wrapped up in bright citrus acidity. Old Austrian Riesling characteristics.

From a half bottle.
Had this wine more than a dozen times now, and it NEVER lets me down.
Fantastic value and perfect cellar material.
