Appearance: Clear, with medium golden color, and legs. Nose: Clean, the nose shows medium (+) intensity aromas of ripe stone fruit of apricot, tropical fruit of pineapple, maturity notes of honey, citrus notes of lemon peel and orange marmalade, oak notes of cedar, dairy notes of cream, sweet spice and botrytised characters. The wine is developing. Palate: Sweet with medium (+) acidity and medium (+) alcohol, the wine is full body and medium (+) intensity flavors of ripe stone fruit of apricot, maturity notes of honey, dairy notes of cream, oak notes of cedar, citrus notes of orange marmalade. The wine has a medium (+) finish. Conclusion: Good quality Sauternes with an intense nose showing good complexity, the wine shows typical botrytis characters, with a refreshing palate having the right balance between sweetness and acidity. The flavors are equally concentrated and complex, with a fairly long finish accompanying. It is ready to drink now though can benefit from further ageing of another 6-8 years.
Rather nice. Seems to have gained in concentration with bottle time. Rich golden colour. Ripe nose (apricot) with a touch of botrytis. Light and easy going in the mouth, but fresh and pure - would match an entrée with foie gras to perfection. At peak, I think.
Out of 375, PnP. Aromas of mulled cider, candied pear, ginger, honey, and orange marmalade; hint of petrol. Flavor profile is very similar, except for a creamy apple pie a la mode sensation in the middle. Pretty light on its feet for the style...the finish is medium, energetic, and very spicy -- not cloying or syrupy at all. Very high-quality; worth a hell of a lot more than the going rate.
Rich and quite sumptuous, with good botrytis and attractive apricotty-beeswax flavours. Admittedly drunk a touch warm but I've had this wine before and would prefer to see a bit more acid and structure. Seems to be a bit of a 2005 characteristic...
An attractive wine with good complexity and very easy drinking right now. Well priced; good value.
