A fine Clos de Sainte Catherine from 1994. The label states this was bottle 0844 of 2980.
One of the finest sweet white wines of the Coeaux de Layon in the Bordeaux region.
More gooseberry than vanilla or honey and with a delightful after taste, no sign of sourness or bitterness.
My Father's cellar held a 1999 bottle as well. On the basis of last night's tasting this remaining bottle (0554 from 6633 in 1999) should wait another five years before drinking.
