i stand it so i get that nasty petrol up on the top and hopefully it blows off when i pop the cork!


Petrol in Sauternes?

PH


yea definitely the older ones especially get that petrol stink that I don't enjoy

it smells like too much sulfur was dumped in the wine


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.
