Wine Entry : Sauternes Maison Johane’s Boubee Reserve 2004 (French)

Got this bottle of wine from the Carrefour wine fair, and we opened it during the Christmas celebrations together with the Champagne. It has a golden straw clear colour and costs S$32.50.
I was probably attached to the label since it had a motif of a lion, since now is the Chronicles of Nardia hype. Quite a delightful sweet dessert wine to drink from the Sauternes region, but somewhat lacking in the complexity and fullness.

Smell : Sweet sea smell with faint lychee-apricot aromas.

Taste : Sweet light and refreshing similar to lemon-orange jam/marmalade.

After-taste : A slightly bitter orange peel finish.
