Damn, how did I not know this? What about good Sauternes from good years? I have a number of Guirauds, Rieussecs and Doisey-Vedrines in a bunch of years, some good like '99 and '01 and '03, but also weaker years like '04 and '96. Also a 750ml of '90 de Fargues. I love Sauternes, but rarely drink it because there is so few opportunities to share the stuff!
