Madame of the Chateau was there in the Joanne booth at VinExpo who was charming but this wine just shined even without her presence. Tasted more of Climens in Barsac. Elegant and just grabs your attention...super lengthy finish! — 7 years ago
Incredible experience with some aged Sauternes. Orange blossom, vanilla and a little nutty. Awesome wine — 2 months ago
Incredible “desert” wine - sweet and full- bodied, but not too heavy. Pairs nicely with a tart or citrus-based desert. — 3 months ago
Drank 4/26/18 at a tasting event.
2nd wine of Climens. Nose of pineapple and honeyed apricots, with some slight volatility that blows off after a few minutes. Flavors of pineapple and some light honey, without the depth or richness of the Climens. Decent wine, but would vastly prefer the Doisy Vedrines for around the same price.

100% dry Semillon from Barsac. Coming from one of the great Sauternes houses, this has to be magnificent right? Of course it is. Pale lemon in the glass with a floral perfumed nose. Lemon zest, lychee, and green apple get the party started with pears and honeysuckle coming to play. The honey, the straw, the brioche bread, all so lovely and so deep. Such an exciting, ethereal nose.
Lovely is the word of the day here. This is a mood invoking wine. Soft but rich. Evocative yet subtle. The acidity is crisp and the mouthfeel silky. The palate displays nice orchard fruits and a touch of stone minerality. Very saline, very correct, and magnificently pure. Spring in a bottle. A very unique, fun wine and I cannot get enough. — 3 months ago
Heck of a 3rd Friday to kick off the holidays!
This was my first time with this producer. All the typical Sauternes notes of honeyed fruits, marmalade, toasted cashews...the sweetness wasn’t as precise as Rieussec, Climens or Guiraid up front, but it had the aromatics and front, mid palate in spades. Drinking well now but clearly no rush. — 3 years ago
