    Default Sauternes

    I've only tried 2 Sauternes. The 1st time, I was like, Why didn't
    anybody tell me about this before?!?! It tasted like gold would taste.
    Profoundly wonderful. Now I have 2 splits of 2005 Rayne Vigneau. I
    intend to open one at Thanksgiving, so my kin can try, but will hold on
    to the other one as long as I can. I also have a bottle of 1990
    Suduiraut that was giving as a gift by a French coworker a couple years
    ago. It's color is already a gorgeous dark amber, but I'll wait as long
    as I can, possibly til after I get my (2nd) degree, which I just started.

    We have a small supply of 1962 Suduiraut we have cellared for many years. A
    recent taste was wonderful. Sauternes age far more than a wine with the same
    alcohol content, but without any residual sugar. This also true of Ports,
    even more so, as they have residual sugar and 18% alcohol. I recently
    uncorked a 1963 port. The 45 year old cork came smoothly in one piece. I
    think one could argue that 1963 was the best vintage in the 20th century for
    port. The British certainly knew what they were doing when they bought all
    that land in Portugal.
