The colour rather dark considering that it is only a few years young. Compared to the rest of the 2001 Sauternes, it looks really old. Mix of semillon, sauvignon blanc, and muscadelle.

Lots of botrytis. The nose of honey, apricot & Chrysanthanum (really....). Thick thick thick. The finish is really rich and long. I liked this one but hmm...for the price, I can think of a few that I would prefer, some at even half its price of $20 per 375ml (Chateau Bel Air at $9.99 per 375ml comes to mind).

Had it with a bit of Maytag blue.

Fritz Maytag of the Cheese, Wine, Beer and Washer fame is due here in the next couple of weeks. He always has a tasting of something at our local pushers jernt and the highlight is char-broiled burgers with his signature blue. He's bottling his own wine now from the great York Creek Vineyards
he owns in Napa. Good stuff on all fronts. WW

That's the way to live. Go into business, become succesful and then do what you like......maybe one day.....
