Wine Entry : Chateau Solon Sauternes 1999 (French)


Got this bottle from Carrefour at $35. It was a orange-gold colour in the glass, high level of temptation but kinda of disappointing upon tasting.

Smell : Citrus orange peel intertwined with alcohol and spice.

Taste : A little over the hill, orange-lemon. No overwhelming honey influence.

After-taste : Tinge of bitterness and oak at the end.

Wine Entry : Reserve der Comtesse 1993 (French)

One of my fav wines, I have a vertical from 2000 to 2006 at the moment.

Smell : Mild blackcurrent still emboding significant alcohol amounts

Taste : Well mellowed for its age, no major fruit but with nice tannins.

After-taste : Smooth with some spice at the end.
