2001 was such a great vintage and the wines from Sauternes or Barsac are in a gorgeous place right now. Golden orange in color. The nose is beautiful with honey and apricots. Slightly sweet on the palate. Oranges and apricots with honey. Viscous with a nice backbone of acidity. Long finish. This is complex and layered and demands ones attention. The first sip tastes good, then evolves on the palate and just does not let go. Works great with blue cheese or a savory dessert.
