2008 vintage. Overt phenolic bitterness in the form of over-caramelized sugar and over-toasted almonds. Comb of the honeycomb, dried apricot, bruised apple, tangerine peel, dried white fig.

Lovely Sauternes, still very young, with lots of potential, visit in a decade or so :-) gold color, lovely aromatic nose, honey, sweet flowers, dry mango and dry apricot, citrus ,minerals, a touch of botrytis, creamy rich body, lightly sweet with lovely acidity, needs a bit more time to evolve and show its full potential, my score 89, approachable now, but best 2018-2028

Having this (and the '90) in my own cellar I've always had high hopes but have honestly not been impressed over the last decade, thinking they were starting to show the "hollowness" (caramelized/drying out/tannic version) of Sauternes in a not ideal vintage.
However this bottle tonight shared by a friend have my hopes back up.

Fantastic. Though the 2001 was phenomenal. 2005 was a bit crap (like recent wanky sauternes - overextracted with no acidity). The recent vintages (2009-11) show more class.
