From a half bottle. Pale golden colour. This is fabulous vin de paille. Tons of marzipan and ripe apricot on the nose, with the same on the palate. Super intense and sweet, but there's definitely enough acidity here; this is never cloying, even for a second. Floral and orange peel notes on the palate and a bit of bitter almond on the finish keeps things interesting too. Loooooooooong.
Birthday dinner for..............ME!!!!!!! (Cafe Med): Wow!! What a killer wine!! This thing looked so thick and rich when it was poured in the glass and it did not disappoint. I could see where some could see this being too sweet and not enough acidity but it rocked tonight to me. This was drank next to 2003 Yquem and this was the clearly my favorite of the two. Great with cream brûlée. A wonderful wine with so much sweetness but not cloying and over the top.
In my view - a dead ringer for Chateau D'yquem. Loads of flavors, smooth, buttery, thick (but not overly). Like drinking candy. Drank this slightly warmer than usual which brought out a lot of flavors. Drinking well right now but would guess this is good for 20 more years....95+
10.5% alcohol. Viscous yellow color. Like the most decadent nectar. A syrup-like, delicious wine that is unctuous and delightful. Reinforces, once more, that dessert wines are the true best expression of what SQN does. A
