Tasting Notes NRC 2021
Grade: 8.5/10 | Sauternes is the world famous dessert wine from the south of Bordeaux, where a mist rises along the river that makes the grapes rot nicely. At least, that is the intention: noble rot, also called botrytis, gives the wines that creamy, milky, heavenly sweetness. Can be served with fruit and with something salty, such as Roquefort.
