There are hundreds of sweet wines but if we had a survey to name just one, bet your bottom dollar that Sauternes would be top of the list. This famous French sweetie is served at posh dinner parties and top restaurants around the world, usually in those silly little ‘thimble’ glasses but hey, let’s talk about the wine itself for a minute.

AUD$69. This wine is in stark contrast to the 2005 at this time. Now within its peak drinking window, this fully mature Coutet showed softer floral scents with notes of apricot, mango and Japanese cherry tea. Delicious plump flavours of mango, apricot, candied pineapple and ginger. It still maintains some freshness attributable to moderate acidi... Read More
AUD$65. My first pour of the Coutet 2000 presented with a distinct waft of VA, almost detergent like. I questioned my nose, and sought a second opinion of the second bottle. Ah! Much better, a clean fragrant nose this time. Still, this wine has a muted nose with light aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. A simplistic drink, with med+ acidity, it... Read More
AUD$74. This is a brilliant lush young wine that is just hitting its strides. Ive had several gos at this vintage, and it has been interesting to try and recall how it has evolved in bottle.

Just posted full notes on Bordeaux 2011, with videos and photos and analysis, and feel like rattling off wines that come to mind as the most memorable, if not necessarily the "best" ...The first list evidently does not take price into account, and does not include Latour and Mouton, which I did not taste, nor several apparently kick ass Pomerols...

A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Ever the masochist, I decided to go look at some prices in the marketplace after the ratings were released. Some samplings:2009 Chatau Latour 100 points $21,500 a case2009 Chateau Marg... Read More
