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. Had this at tasting and bought a few bottles! Will contine to age in the bottle. Nice!

75/23/2 Semillon/Sauv Blanc/Muscadelle. High intensity, long finish. Stewed apricot, honey, dried mango, FRESH mango, pineapple, clove. Young Botrytis. Elevated acid, medium dry/sweet? Gold in color. “Closed and tight”

Stunning and youthful. Grilled pineapple, apricot, lemon zest, nectarine ... The flavor nuances are endless. Very sweet (162 g/L!!) But so well balanced with acidity and depth of flavor. A beautiful Barsac and it will keep almost forever

Love this producer. Lots of pineapple, stone fruit and marmalade. My third favorite Sauternes producer.

A fantastic surprise at a dinner party in Nashville. Hints of Chartreuse.

Absolutely fantastic Sauternes. Among the best wines I've had. 2014 vintage enjoyed in January 2018

Agreed with another reviewer's tasting notes of Pineapple and Marmelade
