Very ripe and dense of a wine, don't see this one lasting more than 10 more years, built I could be wrong.

Preserved tropical fruits, honeyed spice aromas, marzipan flows into a classic palate, mature and complex, with lovely balance. Though lacks acidic drive, as in finishing short and surprisingly simple.

Golden color. Creme Brûlée with peaches and cream on the nose continue through on the flavors. Dried fig shows on the delicate, soft finish.

Complex and interesting. Still lively while exhibiting a certain maturity at the same time. Great balance, spice, sweet, and savory tones. Makes one sit and drink and think if you're ready to listen.

Nectar of the gods - rich and light at the same time somehow. One of the most delicious Sauternes I've ever had.
