A little Aldehyde on the nose, but so pretty otherwise. Wet wool, honeyed, apricot, off dry, amazing acid and med weight on the body. Fun.

So, so, so good. Exactly the right amount of RS and screaming acid. 200-pound barbell on a tightrope. Oozes Chenin-y power: baked apples, beeswax, salt, honeysuckle, aged cheddar, and crushed white stone. Pinguets at the hight of his powers in a stellar vintage. Hope there are more in the pipeline like this. Demi-sec is my favorite style from the house and probably the most age-able table-wine style, as the Molleux are too sweet for anything but cheese, in general. Drink from now until the end of time.

Medium lemon with Medium (+) intensity developing aromas of straw, pear, quince, apple, toast, blossom and honey. Off-dry, with medium alcohol, high acidity, medium (+) body and medium (+) . This is so beautifully balanced with flavors of quince, apple, pear, toast, straw and honey. Long finish; drink now but has potential for further aging. Outstanding quality.

Lingering, balanced by just the right amount of RS today, flinty, and not tired
