  • Color amarillo dorado bien brillante e intenso, limpio y gruesa lágrima bien lenta. Nariz con una excelente intensidad, bien fino y elegante, intensos aromas de fruta blanca bien madura (pera) y fruta de hueso (albaricoque en almíbar y algo orejones), cierto toque de piel de naranja seca y finas sensaciones de higos secos, miel de acacia, flores blancas muy agradables, bastante frescura, suaves notas de vainilla en rama y un suave fondo ahumado muy elegante y ligeramente cremoso que acompañan a su buena mineralidad. Notable entrada en boca bien cremosa y elegante, finura en todo su recorrido con caramelo de miel y suaves cítricos maduros, muy sabroso, excelente acidez, ligera sensación de mermelada de flores blancas, notable volumen y frescura, finos tostados magníficamente integrados en el conjunto, bien equilibrado entre su suave dulzura y las finas notas amargas que le dan estructura, fina textura, elegante y espectacular persistencia. Final largo, postgusto de fruta madura y retronasal finamente floral y dulzón.

  • Very sweet, powerful and concentrated, with fresh, lively, honey drenched tropical fruits, vanilla and floral notes. The wine has depth, complexity and length.

  • from 375ml
    Day 1 - Tasted 2 hours after opening. Light straw gold color, initial familiar sauternes sweetness aroma followed quickly by a light pleasant floral scent, and then revert back to pineapple & citrus smell. Upon tasting, taste followed the exact pattern, with additional hint of smokeiness / burnt at the finish. So smooth with great balance of acidity. Obviously quite young, but very enjoyable right now.
    Day 2 - (left 1 oz overnight in bottle in fridy - just pop the cork back in) Color is the same, aroma & taste was dominated by sweetness of pineapple / apricot, and the floral note is ever so faintly present.
    Day 1 was much more yummy.

  • Clear, brass gold, white rim, thousands of lonely thick tears
    Clean, full intensity, powerful flora aromas of jasmine, saffron, honey, ripe apricots, and guava
    Sweet, full body - so smooth! Med-acidity, low tannins, med+ alcohol. Beautiful thick nectar of orange-coloured fruits, turkish delight, candied apples with an amazing finish of flowers in your mouth.

    (Château d'Yquem (Sauternes)) A fine, meaty density on the nose here, with creamed yellow fruits, lanolin, vanilla pod, overall a deliciously honeyed combination of flavours. The palate starts off fairly understated, before a savoury weight coming in through the midpalate which counters the balanced sweetness of the wine. This is elegant rather than intense, although there is certainly a good layer of complex phenolic elements bringing a welcome, savoury bitterness to the back of the wine. Sweet yet fresh and balanced, despite the overt density of the wine. Excellent.
