Mahogany color. Thick and viscous. Lots of integrated botrytis. Taste is a cross between French sauternes and sweet German riesling. Lots acidity to balance the sweetness.

Caramel color, sweet to the point of syrupy. Was ready to drink; don't wait.

1990. Big fan of Bise. Sweet, but not too much so, thanks to the spine of acidity. Apples and honeyed citrus. No need for dessert in the end.

Nez sur la cire la mirabelle et l orange
Bouche ample massive avec un beau botrytis mais avec un petit manque d acidité pour en faire un très très grand vin

Ripe apricot, Pineapple, ginger, and tarragon. Pure elegance on the palate.

Deep gold/orange, unexpectedly tropical - mango, guava, passionfruit. We had it was jam roly poly and it worked well.
