    September 5, 2019 - 6th of 24 halves, pnp, perfect cork and balance, big step up from previous night's d'Arche 01, with rich and powerful tropical fruit, could have used a tad more citrus rather than marmalade in mix as pushing balance, probably youthful exuberance in spite of colour in this top vintage. F+ (18).

    April 14, 2019 - Nice bottle. Agree that it is a bit on the sweet side, but still a very nice wine.

    March 10, 2019 - 2001 Sauternes Horizontal Tasting: Unrepentantly rich! Both the aroma and palate were brimming with sweets and fruits. The texture was the thickest of all the wines that evening. This is something that could scare someone from trying anymore Sauternes because it was so bold. This needed some more acidity to make it less unwieldy.

    Second time around this wine showed more focus but was still very grandiose and ripe.

    This was truly a dessert all on its own.

    January 17, 2019 - Darker than usual. Very complex. Nice honey richness. Not heavy, but big flavors.

    December 25, 2018 - Delicious, marmalade and honey, sweet honeyed fruit with a nice orange fruit and peel length. Softly sweet and long on the finish. very happy with this.
