Classic Sauternes, treading the fine line between sweetness and elegance. Initially, it seems to be dominated by the botrytis, but then sweet fruits also show, with ripe yellow fruits, honey and almonds, touched with citrus. As it develops, the wine will become richer and more intense.
There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. Best after 2012. 6,250 cases made.
This is rich in color and in its scents of beeswax and macerated peaches. Clean, light and gently honeyed, this is a balanced, lovely Sauternes that should age well.
Pale gold. Peach, apricot, honey and spices are currently muted by SO2 on the nose. Then rather powerful in the mouth but closed, with densely packed peach and apricot flavors framed by strong acidity. A bit youthfully sullen today but finishes long and penetrating, with a hint of heat and a slightly sugary impression.
