Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1988

Winemaker's Notes:

The rich yet fresh and lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery and honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky creme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Fantastic aged Sauternes. Warm candied fruit flavors, cashews, burnt sugar but acidic grip hangs on like its climbing Everest. Such a treat. Was amazing with creme caramel. Would probably still be very much alive for years to come.
