Tasting Notes:

91 points "lighter red mahogany color, wax capsule intact, very good cork. opened to a dusty, stinky, woodsey, faint petrol smell. thought the wine was bad. Tasted a little funny but overall ok. Let decant in the glass, after 20 min. smell blew-off, and wine opened up to beautiful apricots, orange marmalade, boyt. spice, faint honey and balanced acidity. Just the balance of the acidity blows most Sauternes away. Vacuumed Vin and 1/2 put away for the next night, 92pts. on the next night! "
