...The color is deep straw and the wine displays an intense perfume of creme brulee custard baked apple pie and sweet ripe pineapples and pears. Full-bodied rich alcoholic and fat with low acidity and considerable sweetness this is a luxuriously rich unctuously-textured heavyweight Sauternes that should become more civilized with age...

Lively complex fresh aromas of tropical fruit honey and spicy oak. Sweet and viscous in the middle palate; kept fresh by apple and pear notes and harmonious acidity. Very concentrated and deep. Very long on the aftertaste... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

After a period of prolonged disjointedness, this wine has pulled itself together. The color is deep straw, and the wine displays an intense perfume of creme brulee custard, baked apple pie, and sweet, ripe pineapples and pears. Full-bodied, rich, alcoholic, and fat, with low acidity and considerable sweetness, this is a luxuriously rich, unctuously-textured, heavyweight Sauternes that should become more civilized with age.
