Love to hear your thoughts on the Lisini. I opened one several years ago that I felt was wasted due to being opened too soon.

That's a new one for me. I've picked up molasses, burnt sugar, spice, from the darker ones; light, diminished fruit from the lighter ones, and caramel, fruit, spice... from those in between - but never petrol from an older Sauternes.

i certainly may be drinking the wrong ones. oldest one i've had was a chateau de malle from 58. It was ... interesting.
