Whoa. Never had a wine like this. Chenin Blanc that has turned very dessert like/sweet. The nose on this is fantastic! Honeyed pear, orange marmalade, and something similar to bananas foster. Palate has become viscous but still retains acidity. Shows some overripe pineapple alongside toasted almonds and marzipan. Incredibly unique and complex. Very cool bottle @Mark Flesher .

Half bottle, screw cap. Very fresh, lacking in weight a bit.

More please. Def honey and marzipan. Thick, but not cloying. Much fuller than expected for Baumard. But still good acid to balance.
