Deep golden; wow rich, noble, caramel, butterscotch, apricot, honey, spicy botrytis and pineapple, I liked the bass to this which commanded your attention; deep and flavorful on the palate wide and deep still with great acid, honeyed and rich pastry though not yet getting into any nutty notes; really great stuff, potent too, the 1 oz pour was the perfect amount for the unbelievable piece of fois that went with it so amazingly, 97 point pairing.
We drank this over 3 days and it definitely was better after additional time opened, suggesting much greater life. Apricots, caramel, honey and creme brulee with perfectly nuanced botrytis. It is hard to ask for much more...except an even better year! Spectacular wine to sip and dwell on life's simple pleasures.
