    August 29, 2014 - The last few cm of the halfbtl first opened in April and kept under cork in the fridge. 5 mths! Who needs Coravin?

    Lush and beautiful with all the attractive beauty as described before. A fantastic wine to enjoy over many years to come. Keepers will be richly rewarded.
    With ME.

    July 1, 2014 - Fabulous nose with spices, honey, lemons, oranges, apricots (A). Well integrated palate with apricots, pears and some almonds. Very long finish. (A-). Drinking very well now after some time in the glass with many more years ahead. From 375ml.

    June 20, 2014 - Hella good. Noticeably better put together and balanced than the 02 served alongside.

    June 19, 2014 - CT Tasting Group (Steve's House): Tasted Blind - Still bright gold and youthful looking. Rich, creamy and smooth showing vanilla, egg whites, lemon curd and a vibrant acidic base to stand up to the richness of the body. Hint of wood on the finish clears out the sweetness nicely. Delicious.

    Excellent - Drink or hold

    June 16, 2014 - Tom & Tami's French and California Extravaganza: Solid sticky, wish I had a case of these stashed away. Deep gold colored. Sweet apricot and pear with the acid providing a bite at the finish. Oh, that's what quality Sauternes taste like...
