  • Nice - no notes. Improved with airtime and paired well with BBQ Pork (surprisingly). 91+

  • Dark gold. Nose of trampled grapes and honey. On the palate it is rich and sweet, predominantly notes of honey with a bits of peach, apricot, and orange marmalade showing through. Has a liquor edge on the finish. A bit too cloying for me as it lacks enough acidity to carry the sweetness.

  • Birthday Dinner with Good Wine (NEXT Restaurant - Chicago IL): Very rich and concentrated dried and fresh apricot and peach. Very ripe, very powerful. Much more energy and freshness than I expected for the 2003. Good now, better going forward.

  • One of the tastiest dessert wines in memory. It is similar in quality to a good Tokaij or Sauternes. It falls short of my very favorite wines in that category but 94 is a high rating so don't ready much into the "falling short" part. A bit on the fresher, concentrated side. What it lacks are the "off" notes of botrytis (sp?) of Tokaij or the candied super-concentration of Y'quem, for instance. For the price, this wine is unbeatable.

  • selected members of the central jersey CT off-line group joined us for dinner at selkirk manor. shared this bottle with pat, chris, margaret and dom. paired with dessert course consisting of a cheese plate provided by dom followed by italian cheesecake from la bella market. was unfamiliar with this wine at the time of tasting but researched afterward. i agree with various articles indicating that in a blind tasting this would pass for a better than average sauternes. generous nose. typical mouthfeel of a french sticky. lots of honey and honeysuckle with a hint of tea on the palate. more interesting on the second day than the first as it seemed to have put on some weight. this is understandandable given the considerable longevity suggested by parker. the only shortcoming was a slight metallic taste in the finish although this was less noticeable on the second day. seems to be a great qpr even though i can't score as high as parker did. overall, a great experience. thanks for your generosity chris.
