Tasting with Florent Baumard (Chicago, IL): Rich and sweet, with coconut the dominant characteristic on the nose and palate. There's a slight bit of dried fig and nutty character, as well as some of the caramelized pineapple you might find in an upside-down cake. Sadly, the acidity's a bit low on this one. I'd love for this to have more acidic grip.
Tasting at Domaine Baumard with Florent Baumard. Light yellow in the glass, this wine came across as a bit unbalanced compared to the '04 Clos St Catherine we had just tasted. It also seems to possess a bit of the telltale heaviness of 2003. Still, it's a very nice wine but I wouldn't hold it too long. 50+12+11+7.5+7.5 = 88
