1st half ..Quite deep amber . Rich , barley sugar , touch caramel . So long and complete deep rich . Great intensity . Sweet but with great balancing acidity .
Second bottle lighter , took more time to open . Fresher , with touch more ripe caramelized peel , marmalade and creme brûlée, even more intense on the palate , acidity is higher but the richness and sweetness still there. Incredibly long. Tastes so young , needed time to open . More complexity . On the basis of this (half) bottle this can last another decade or more . The rating is for this second half , the first would have been 95. Drank at Noizé, London . First half had a level of VTS, the second BN. — 16 days ago

Pale lemon color with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of grapefruit, green apple and pear fruit flavors, some grassy tones, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending with fruit, herbal, floral, grassy and mineral notes. Lightly chill so you can experience all of the nuances while you sip this fine wine. Nice, consistent. — 19 days ago
The prettiest of a great lineup. Much more Mosel than Vouvray, leads with intense, ripe white peach and nectarine, fragrant apple, subtle florals. The exuberance of fruit never exceeds into Voigner-like cocktail but it’s kept in check by the mineral backbone in the nose. The palate has a perfect touch of rd to underline the fruity character and abundant minerality and acidity promising even better times to come with age — 22 days ago
Rollercoaster of orange, pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, clementine and clove. Sweet almond notes intertwine with honeysuckle, honey, bee pollen and mixed marmalade. Orange marmalade prevails on the palate with poached pear and nectarine, quince and beeswax. Excellent in all ways.

Columbia County 3.0: Apparently I’m one wine away from my 2,000th reviewed on Delectable, which is probably an odd milestone I would not have even conceived of when starting. What better way to celebrate than with the queen bee of wines (?), royalty w grace : an utterly intense & laser- focused Sauternes. Apricot & pineapple perfumed to the point of raising the rafters. Floods the mouth w quince, candied apricot & pineapple. This may be only its half life, & that’s understating it. — 2 days ago
