    Nothing like wine held hostage.

    June 26, 2014 - Good wine, but doesn't feel entirely well composed when it's this off-dry. Lovely aromatics but the wine just doesn't have the complexity to balance the sweetness, which can be almost jarring. Woolly and honeyed - classic, but doesn't follow through on the palate.

    March 14, 2014 - Très bien mais loin d'être sec! Opulent et baroque.

    January 13, 2013 - lacking a little bit of acidity

    December 6, 2012 - OK. Peachy sweetness that was nice enough, but flabby and imprecise.
