What is your favorite style of dessert wine?

I just had a wonderful Muscato Passito di Pantelleria! What is your favorite style of dessert wine: this type of sun dried wine, Icewine, Noble Rot, Melomel, or just late harvest? What makes your sweet tooth happy?

Thanks for asking!

Sauternes,(France),  of course.

Not necessarily the expensive vintages of the King / Queen of Sauternes, the famous vintages of Chateau d'yquem, but the equally

fine offerings of Chateau Lafaurie-Peyraguey.

I have been enjoying the 2006 regularly and introduced a few friends who are thrilled by its seamless beauty and mellow honeyed tantalizing flavour, not to mention its yellow, golden hue.

May I add my lovely Vidal Ice Wines from Pelee Island Winery (Canada).

They are heavenly and never cloying at all.
