Quite consistent with my notes from ~6 months ago:
Nose has over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and mango.
Admittedly I love Sauternes and have many bottles, yet it's a rarity on opening and posting to the Community. We paired this bottle with a hard, smoked goat cheese from a local, Hudson valley producer, a solid match of sweet and salty. — 3 days ago
A blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, & 2% Muscadelle. Golden with complex aromas, somewhat Riesling like, and adding a tropical bouquet. On the palate this botrytis rich wine shows apple, pineapple and honeysuckle flavors. Lingering finish ending with smoky vanilla notes. Was lucky enough to get a taste of this beauty. Will contine to age in the bottle. Tasting Sample. — a month ago
Love this with my plate of cheeses. Honey and apricots. Beautiful golden color. — 9 days ago
2001 vintage. 80 % Sauvignon blanc, 20 % Sémillon. Low yields (25 hl/ha), 10000 bottles produced. Deep golden colour, looks older than it tastes. Intense perfume of bee wax, almonds and dried flowers. Powerful, profound and very good length. For lovers of older white Bordeaux. — 16 days ago
