97 Chateau Rounieu-Lacoste, Sauternes Haut-Barsac

A delicate, shy Sauternes. Bright, summery tangerine and melon nose that sadly overpowers the rather thin palate. Oddly sweet and herbal, yet intrusively dry at times, the sugar drifts back and forth with volatile acidity. Hardly harmonious, but more than quaffable. The meaty, caramelized onion finish makes this wine particularly food friendly, especially with a savory cheesecake. [From half-bottle.]
