Bright golden color. Nose of burnt sugar, dried pineapple, dried apricot and a little botrytis. Medium-full bodied, with over ripened pineapple. Very nicely balanced, with saffron on the long finish. Nice value here.

90% Semillion Grapefruity, grassy nose initially, very surprizing. It turned to the normal, pleasent mix of tropical fruits and saffron. Very tropical in the mouth. Passionfruit, melon and a bit of botrytis. Sauternes is my favorite type of wine, this was the best Sauternes I've ever had. Outstanding wine.

Drank at Courtrights in the Chicago suburbs. This was recorked in 2005, which was quite surprizing (Also 15% alcohol.) Beautiful golden amber color. The nose was etheral. Orange blossom honey, burnt sugar and caramel also present. Full bodied, etheral and balanced. Lots of caramel, got hints of amaretto, too. The finish was very spicy. We drank this with foie gras, creme brulee and a browned butter almond cake. The cake was unbelievable. It paired very well. Not so well with the creme. The burnt sugar was too much. The sommelier enjoyed this as well. Though this was my first truely aged Sauternes, I didn't enjoy it as much as the 2003 Lafaurie. 94 pts.

popped the cork on this beauty (RP95) last night after dinner.  it was at about 60 degrees (fresh from the wine cellar) and not overly chilled.  the aromatics exploded out of the glass...peach, honeysuckle, a hint of brown molasses.  the wine is golden in colour (it's still very young at only 4 vintage years old).  the aromatics did not disappoint on the palate.  this is an unctious wine-very luxurious and almost decadent in the mouth.  the honey and molasses were there, without question, along with a myriad of other succulent froot flavours.  the wine coated my mouth for what felt like forever.  it's a lot richer and thicker than you might expect. 

5 stars, no question

The good, the bad, and the ugly....

I opened this bottle last week for my birthday and was excited to give it a go. Well, the excitement quickly vanished upnon peeling back the foil and finding significant signs of leakage. The cork was a mess...

The wine was slightly tainted, but only slightly.

Color: Rich carmel hues as a 40 year old Sauternes should be

Nose: Sweet, not overwhelming with anything other than a bit of pear and slight smoke

Palate: Only slightly sweet, viscous and smooth, short and disappointing finish. Nothing really stood out flavor-wise. A little acidic or alcohol 'tickle' on the tongue ont he finish.

Perhaps the quality of the bottle had been too compromised or maybe at 40, it was beyond its prime. I have one other bottle, which I may open sooner, rather than later. I'll update this review, shoudl the outcome be better.

This blend has a nice flavor to it. It goes very good with cheese. There is a honey and pineapple and fruit and coconut to the flavor. This wine is very good.

This fiery wine has a very high alcohol 15% that over powers the fruit.

Aside from that this wine has a nice balance to it.

In the mouth this wine feels sweet, rich and crisp.
Heavey and Intense. Buttery with honey covered fruit flavors.

I have to say I liked this wine. it's one of those wines that bite back with a strong alcohol taste and it is thick. most would say yuck!! But I like it.
