This is an agreeable, balanced Sauternes with more grace than power. It’s hard not to admire the flavors of orange marmalade, papaya, and candied ginger, even if they don’t overwhelm the senses. Ridiculously good for the price I paid for it (~$30 for a half bottle @ KLWines auction).

Last of 12, pnp, perfect cork and level, tad more nuanced than last showing in 2014 and against otherwise classier Rieussec ’98 on same night, hard to see it getting any better, but should hold for years. F+ (18).

During a tasting dinner. Nose of smoke, flowers, quince, very complex. Excellent palate, good freshness, long finish. A very strong showing and a Sauternes of great quality. Everyone loved it.
