Château Liot (France) Sauternes 1996
The colour is a youthful pale gold. There's an elegant subtlety about the nose with restrained botrytis notes of honey and fig, with buttery, cool white-fruit to the fore and an oatmeally, biscuity note. On the palate it is quite luscious with sweet peach and orange fruit drizzled with honey. The fruit doesn't quite persist through good citrus acidity in the finish, but this is a balanced and refined Sauternes of good quality. Bought from Sainsbury UK a few months ago at only £9.99 per half bottle, but is now discontinued. You may find some that is old stock. (03/00).
