    August 18, 2021 - sucres 52,2 g/l et acidité 4,2 g/l

    Robe : Jaune clair, scintillant. Aucune trace d'évolution
    Nez : Trés riche sur le coing l'aubépine, le tilleul. Les fruits blancs. Mais le coing revient en force.t
    En bouche : Quelle douceur, quelle harmonie. Comme toujours le sucre/l'acidité/amer forment un triptyque superbe ! très belle longueur en bouche.
    Excellent

    February 24, 2021 - Probably time to drink up, at least with this bottle. There’s definitely elements of dried, sherried fruits, nuts, apricots, peach, and honey. Some florals on the nose and a viscous, waxy mouthful. Still enjoyable but definitely some sherry-like elements creeping in, which won’t be for everyone.

    March 17, 2020 - Lanolin, petrol, apricotpie, honey, blonde tobacco, some interesting vegetal and metallic flavors.
    Mature, medium sweetness on the palate, off-dry finish.
    Drink now.

    January 16, 2020 - Clear, deep golden appearance with viscous tears/legs. If appearance could talk, it would be saying - I'm a big and thick wine. The nose is clean, complex and intense - showing well developed wax, honey, dried apricot and even floral high tones. Definitely a wine with maturity and excellent condition to boot. The palate is full bodied, with medium minus acidity - but the wine is by no means fat or cloying. For a 13% ABV the off dry - borderline sweet - palate surprised me a bit. Still, the wine literally melts into candied nectarines and apricots. Oak surfaces in the mid palate and accompanies the long finish. Very enjoyable wine...

    March 27, 2019 - Très beau, pas le plus riche, mais assez complexe et digeste, bonne longueur. Un petit délice sucré qui se boit très bien!
