This is an inexpensive Sauternes that retails for around $20.  That is a great value for a nice dessert wine.  Light gold/green in color.  The nose has apricots and slight honey.  It has just a hint of sweetness.  Some apricots on the palate.  Nice acidity.  A nice choice for large groups or just a nice finish to a meal.

What a fantastic wine.  Deep golden in color.  Very pretty.  On the nose, there is honey, sea air, and apricots.  On the palate, this is very complex.  Apple, honey, some citrus (almost a burnt sugar-ish citrus if that makes sense).  With air, some creme brulee emerges.  Long finish.  This is sweet but not as sweet as I expected and no where near cloying.  Good acidity.  The wine has decades left.

Gold/silver/copper in color.  The nose has lemon and minerals with a bit of a metallic quality to it.  On the palate, this has good acidity.  Full bodied.  Green apples especially on the finish.  Slightly oily texture.  This is a very nice, relatively inexpensive white Bordeaux that is drinking fine right now.  I doubt it makes old bones, but that is fine.  Food friendly as well.
