Château David 2004

Member Review by yourfiction:

What a great wine. I just finished a glass of it and have to admit that I sat there just enjoying the nose for quite some time. It is a great mix of fruity and flowery all the way to earthy aromas. You will find some honey melon and some of that beautiful golden honey at first and then catch some orange peel, dried apricots and sweet apples. Then you get this tiny bit of bark mulch, which is incredible because it gives the wine a little bit of an edge, just like that guy you know that is always really quite and nice, but who can really let lose and stand up for himself in some situations. Then you get a slight acidity already in the nose. And what you smell is what you taste. I would even say that you get a little bit more of the flowery note at that point. It hits really sweet, which is the only point why I did not give the full rating, since it is short before going over the top, but then it mellows out and opens up in your mouth like a gorgeous flower. You will understand that even more if you observe the amazing golden color a little more. It has a hint of green, but is still reflecting the sunlight bold and golden. On the mid-palette it is very balanced - still sweet - and shows all the great nuances the nose already gave away. It has this beautiful hint of mango licorice (for all who ever had it, it's the one from Sprouts). Honey comes through fairly strong, but also gives this feeling that makes the wine very smooth and almost a little viscous, reminding of a bigger Sherry. There is much to say about this wine, but I should just recommend: Get some bottles if you are open for sweeter desert wines on a nice evening at sunset to enjoy it with all senses. All in all, a very amazing desert wine. I just bought a small bottle, but I will stock up on it. It's better for you than candy, that's for sure. :-)
