Elegant, luscious but youthful so it isn't yet fully developed. Lovely pineapple and apricot, we'll balanced acidity but will gain depth with more time in the bottle

Wild honey, apricot, warm spices in the aftertaste. Long time since I’ve had a Sauterne. Forgotten how complex it can be.

Delicious desert wine. One can really taste the sweet and very ripe white grape. Expensive but very worth it. A delicatesse.

Pineapple honey deliciousness. Nothing better with bread pudding.

Floral nose. Apricots, honey, almond, with mineral notes. Enjoyable sweet wine.

Bit of sweet tooth satiation to start a day of Xmas laziness! Really great value Sauternes. Great balance and delicacy (relative to other Sauternes of course; it’s obviously still a rich wine). Went perfect with Bellecour’s orange zest-accented cinnamon rolls and INCREDIBLE with spiced rice porridge.

- Color: medium yellow-gold hue
- Nose: poached pears and peaches, honey and beeswax, ground cardamom, lychee, fresh jasmine
- Palate: poached pears and peaches, alfalfa honey, lychee, fresh vanilla, and cardamom
- Acid: medium/medium (+)
- RS: obviously pretty high, although on the lower end of sweetness compared to many other Sauternes
- Alcohol: medium (+) to high, but doesn’t come across hot on the palate
- Body: oily, glycerine, medium (+) body
