Chateau Saint-Amand Sauternes, 1983

Even for a wine that's nearly 30 years old, the color of this Saint-Amand Sauternes was a bit distressing. The smells and flavors, though, were bright and on target.

Yes, it has lost its yellow and even its deep gold hues and is now the color of weak tea. The smells, though, are what you expect from a much younger Sauternes: figs, apricots, almonds and coconut. Medium body, bright acidity and a long, sweet finish. Well liked at the table and got more positive votes than the Aigle Blanc Vouvray (see below).
