Château d'Arche La Perle D'Arche 2005 Sauternes, $22.99-$25.99 (375ml), 90 points, appeared a deep polished gold color.
The aroma was predominately honey and hazels nuts, both of which translated onto the palate with apricot notes on a full body, round and rich, with good acidity.
Finished very long on the trailing palate with ginger notes and some warmth from the 13.5% alcohol.
I paired this Sauternes satisfactorily as a dessert wine with Pecan pie, but excellent as an aperitif.
