"Odedi"

This is a delicious dessert wine from France. Sweet on the palate with great complexity.

Showing honey, yellow apples, apricots, spices, sweet nectar, white wild flowers, melons, brown sugar and spices.

Medium bodied with high acidity.

Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Thank you Barry for sharing this with me.

This needs no food. Just sip and enjoy.

This 8 year old will continue age nicely in the next 40 years.

Just delicious.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

97 points.

$160 (375 ml).

Wow- some felt a little shut down. I felt the opposite. Expressive of honey comb, racy acid to balance and truly superb

Slightly earlier pick than usual. White floral with freshly spun sugar, white stone fruits and slight spice.

Any day that starts with d'Yquem is bound to be good! The precision and purity of this bottle was amazing- ultra clean apricot like botrytis and massive sweetness married to crystalline acidity... Wow!

Beautiful wine. Thick and unctuous and a delicious spicy phenolic character.
