Château de Cadillac en Fronsadais Cadillac Branda Bordeaux Blanc Sec 1991, Bordeaux, France

Pale lemon in color.

Pronounced nose of dried fruits, over ripen citrus fruits, red apples, apricots and Mediterranean spices. Nice and complex.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity. A little buttery and watery.

Dry on the palate with limes, green apples, grapefruits, over ripen citrus fruits, spices and black pepper.

Medium finish with bitter almonds and herbs.

This is a nice 28 year old white Bordeaux. Spicy and tangy and not crisp any longer.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. After 30 minutes of airtime, honey and maple notes show up. Very interesting and special, with nice complexity. Oxidized, but very tasty. Died after 2 hours.

Drank from half bottle.

I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

12% alcohol by volume.

88 points.
