On Wednesdays We Drink Sauternes...

Wine is like fashion… certain things go in and out of style, and certain things are regarded as perpetual classics. While sweet wine can definitely be a polarizing topic, I would argue that if you think you do not like sweet wine, you probably have not had the right one. And if you’ve been hesitate to dip your toes into the sweet nectar of the gods that we call Sauternes, this is the perfect opportunity to do it. But be warned… you may get hooked. While the term dessert wine may make you think this beautiful botrytized baby is only meant as an after dinner drink, it can actually make for a lovely food pairing experience, especially when had with something like either blue cheese or Foie Gras. Coming from powerhouse Sauternes producer Chateau Suduiraut, the Lions de Suduiraut is their second label - simply meaning, it’s a half step in quality level below that of their first label, but about 3 full steps down in terms of price. This delicious wine is a classic blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, with a little bit of new oak aging and 16 total months of barrel aging to round it out. While this wine promises to age for years to come, it is currently fresh and rich and incredibly pleasant even at its young age. Essentially… you can drink this stuff old or young, with food or alone, and should be able to enjoy it in all of these contexts. So get a bottle (or 3) and you can thank me later. - MVT
