One of the great wines form Sauternes.
Unfortunately we had a slighly corked bottle. The first 5 minutes, it was fine, but then the cork broke through and got stronger and stronger. If it is only slightly tainted by cork, the trick is to cool down the wine. We used stone cubes from the refrigerator and it worked.
The wine benefits from the Sauternes glas from Riedel (which is usually only used for D'Yquem) and if it is 100% clean: Mahogany colour with an olive rim; Powerful phenolic nose with herbs and peppermint; full-bodied, peppermint, dense, long, toasted notes, caramel, very complex, oily; 19/20 points.
