Snooth Wine Search:
I thought it was rather good myself, but I found a tasting note on the Observer website that rated it just 2 out of 5 - "Slightly synthetic. Tastes of butter and coconut. Rather sticky texture. Good acidity." Perhaps my half bottled aged more effectively than the Observers sample...
Wine Tasting Note: Le Dauphin de Guiraud Sauternes, 2002, Bordeaux, France
Half bottle around £10.
Deeply golden, lovely quince, pear and orange flavours mingle with a little botrytis spiced-orange-treacle. The spices, clove and cinnamon, linger. Sticky, but good acidity on the finish. Alcohol 13%. Superb with Baked Apples With Cinnamon and Créme Fraiche.
