2001 Château La Tour Blanche Sauternes - France, Bordeaux, Sauternais, Sauternes (9/13/2013) Starting to come into its own now, with honeyed, spicy notes joining vanilla cream and sweet citrus elements. The overall impression is sweet but in no way cloying, the balance persisting through to the long, spiced orange finish. Very delicious, though still in need of more cellar time to flesh out the complexity just a little bit more.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
