  • Really enjoyed this. Fresh, clean, good balance of sweetness and acidity. Another great reason to explore the Loire.

  • - Yellow brown color with slow forming legs and aromas of apple and honey. It's balanced and has flavours of peach and honey with a light/medium body. Round texture with a long finish - Very young. Loaded with young fruit and big nose. Lots of sweetness now. Saved 1/4 bottle to see how it evolves. Very Sauternes like, crisp apple and honey notes. Deep, rich caramel color. Hold 8-10 years.

  • This developed very nicely over the course of several nights. Initially, very juicy ripe red apple, honey and acidity. Youthful. After a few days, there is more tropical fruit, subtlely and refreshing sweetness. I would recommend holding these for several years. That youthful exuberance is perfectly good and the wine is very good. However, it seemed to take on complexity and sophistication over the several days it was open. This should age well for decades.

  • New to this producer. On day one, this wine moves like a Sauternes in the glass. The nose is all honey and apricot, as is the thick, sticky palate. It was warmer than I intended so on to day two. Ahh..the nose is intoxicating with pineapple, honey, white flowers, nutmeg, apricot, followed by a cristaline palate with just enough acidity to make it clean. Still on the sweet side but I expected that. Better colder as it returns to the Sauternes like wine when it warms. On day three the wine has not changed at all. Delicious, long and complex just a bit too sweet. In several years this wine should be epic. Glad I bought more.

  • Starting the New Year right (Columbus Berserkers offline #3) (Chris P's): Wow. Lovely aromatics of honey and concentrated stone fruit juice. Despite the lack of numerous descriptors, what's there is so pure and pleasant I could smell it for hours. The palate matches with honey & stone fruit juice. Again pure and lovely. Some found it a bit sweet but I thought it had good acidity to add structure & balance. This should age for decades.
