  • I don't have much experience with these wines, so I guess I'm rating this vs other dessert wines I've had in the past (say d'Yquem, etc). This was pretty amazing, like liquefied creme brûlée. Instead of just a sugar taste, it had almost a caramel/burnt sugar flavor. Silly thick, the finish just wouldn't stop (and you didn't want it to stop, it was delicious), kept going for many, many minutes. Amazing wine.

  • Pretty much what Peter said. Mindblowingly great. So pure. A powerhouse of honey, caramel, ripe tropical fruits and Meyer lemons accented with flamboyant, high toned spicy notes. Palate-staining intensity and a finish that resonates for minutes, yet so amazingly light and elegant. Wow.

  • Startling, very fruity and very fresh, ripe and concentrated aromas of citrus, peaches, grapes, some exotic fruit, incredible fresh! Lightest hints of honey. Very fruity palate with enough of balancing acidity, very softly textured, mellow. Peach, candied orange, concentrated fresh fruit. Apricot jam in the extremely long aftertaste. Should keep very long though hard to see where it could still further improve with age. Wonderful now for sure.

  • Amazing. perfect balance. Deceivingly sweet -- there is so much acid in here that it doesn't taste nearly as sweet as it is. not at all cloying. intensely concentrated grape juice, apple, nectarine, quince, sweet spice, and floral notes are most prominent. incredibly refreshing. Had first with Foie Gras, and then again with dessert. The finish goes for ever and ever. Unbelievable, and perhaps the best wine I've ever tasted (hmm... 01 Yquem... hmm...). I can't imagine a person that wouldn't love this.
