Chateau Fontaine Grande Reserve Sauternes 2009 $55

This lovely Sauternes scores for approachability: it’s not too sweet nor rich, but complex, with honey, almond/marzipan, malt and spice aromas, but not a lot of botrytis. Medium-weight with restrained sweetness and a slight grip to close. A fine wine for cheese, but beware of sweet desserts. Now to 2018. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: blue castello cheese

Stockists: Red Bottle outlets
