Sweet, slightly oxidized, oil/petrol nose and lovely richness. Somebody thought this was corked (fools) and we scored the bottle for free.

Plenty of bandwidth on this wine. Rich on the palate with honey, melon rind, and musky notes. Less acid than I expected for the vintage but still tasty.

Holy botrytis! This thing reeks of noble rot--practically dripping with ooey gooeyness- candied lemon peel, bruleed grapefruit, grandma's ambrosia salad (Midwestern family, sorry!)- there's definitely some wet mossy earth in the background. Palate is medium sweet and richly savory-flavored, almost like a saffron syrup, or perhaps a passion fruit Creme brulee with an almond topping. Needs some foie or stinky ass blue

Deep honey color and crème brûlée texture. Even at 13 years of age, this can go on for another 20. Apricots and crisp apple and a thickness rolling on the tongue.

While this comes across sweet, this 2003 still has plenty of time to spend in the bottle. Honey colored and yes, a honey background in the flavor profile.

41$ SAQ Wow! Complexity, but subtility. Balance between sugar (moderate), fruit and spicyness, with a floral hint.
