I love dessert wines, Sauternes or otherwise. There's no better way, IMO, to top off a great dinner party than with a half-glass of Sauternes or other sweet white wine (port is good too, but that's a whole other story). These are not the nasty el-cheapo sweet reislings or "white" zinfandels one finds at your supermarket.... These are thick and silky on the palate and often taste of apricot -- very tasty. Bonny Doon (Napa) makes a great dessert white (an icewine, I think) that's reasonably priced, called Vin de Glacerie (or Glaciere?) -- about $18 for a 1/2 bottle. I'm not sure what grapes it's made from -- chardonnay perhaps. I'm a big fan of German BA's, TBA's and icewines (and US icewines too) -- some of the sweetest of these wines can age for 30+ years. I'm currently very slowly working my way through a case of 1992 late harvest (sweet) chardonnay from the Macon region of Burgundy -- I found these on close-out at Wide World of Wines in DC for about $15/bottle. I've got a smattering of 1996, 1997, 1999 and 2001 Sauternes, but I don't drink it much and what I have I'm letting age a bit more.
