Unforgettable. Packs it in and doesn't pull punches, displaying chewy, bold, toasted oak character and honey, spice, dried apricot and pineapple flavors that end in a fresh finish. Best after 1998.

Honey, dried pineapple, apricot and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a spice, dried fruit and honey aftertaste. Balanced and pretty. Best after 2012.

(Barrel tasting) Delicate young Sauternes, with lovely apple, pear and spice character. Medium- to full-bodied, with good concentration and a sweet, spicy finish.

This superb, light to medium gold/green-hued Sauternes is a full-bodied, opulent, enormously endowed, moderately sweet offering with plenty of pineapple, peach, caramel, and smoky new oak characteristics. With great viscosity as well as richness, and good underlying acidity providing vibrancy and definition, it should be at its peak between 2008-2030.

This is another very primal, honeyed nose that is still a little yeasty but there appears to be good fruit concentration with honey, mango and apricot. The palate is displaying very good delineation and minerality, very vibrant and focused with a crisp, zest finish. Good level of botrytis towards the finish, very good length. Very fine. Drink 2012-2030.
