On the nose; marmalade, apricots, peach, white peach, dry pineapple, orange peel, candied lemon, toffee, brandy butter, nuts, brown sugar, molasses, honey, sweet minerals, sea spray and yellow lilies. The palate matches the nose but add spiced cinnamon. The mouthfeel is thick, super rich and luscious. Delicate minerality. The acidity rains on the palate and the finish is endless. My 2nd favorite Sauternes after Chateau d'Yquem. I component tasted at this Chateau in 2014. Not just the grapes varietals separately but also when those grapes were picked. They might make 12 or more passes through the vineyards to make sure they only take fruit at it's peak ripeness. After you do this, you'll never taste Sauternes the same way. I find myself mentally picking it apart and putting back together as it swirls on my palate. — 3 years ago
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! — 6 years 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. — 2 years ago
