Sauternes (French Food In The US)
When it comes to exploring wine, at some point Bordeaux red wines metaphorically translate into white wines, especially sweet botrytis enhanced Sémillon/Sauvignon Blanc, and less often Muscadelle, wines.
"True" wine-lovers tend to wait for years to open these long-lived white wines so as to allow for the mature development of “tertiary” flavors. I'm not sure I can wait, but between now and sometime in the near future, if I don't find a reasonably priced 2001 or 2005 vintage, I'll have to open one of these!
Just another wine event to look forward to!
Is making me late
Is keeping me waiting. . ."
