    January 13, 2015 - 750 ml. Gylden farge. I nesen kjennes aprikoser, fersken, gule plommer og honning. Bra syre som balanserer sødmen. Elegant og åpen. Har nok mistet noe av sin ungdommelige friskhet, men dratt på med litt tyngre aromaer. En av de bedre årgangene på 90-tallet.

    December 24, 2014 - Honey sweet, delicious with a resemblance to a smooth mead

    October 15, 2014 - Just a wednesday evening in Leiden: Nose blood orange, stone fruit, botrytis. Taste balanced sweetness, acidity and botrytis. Long finish.

    August 24, 2014 - See also previous note. In the bouquet the orange is dominating now. On the palate a full bodied yet elegant wine with apricots, good acidity and bitterness. A beautiful and elegant wine. Still youthful.

    December 28, 2013 - Custard, saffron, creme brulee, saline in a sea air kind of way, apricot fruit. Plump and tasty.

    (Chateau Suduiraut Sauternes) A bright and vibrant gold. Lovely honey aromas on an elegant nose. Vibrant and full of vivacity on the palate. Textured but elegant with plenty of botrytis. Sweet fruit with a toffee edge. Delicious. This is beginning to show some evolution but will improve for years yet.
