Gorgeous golden hue, honeyed, orchard fruit, melon, faintly floral, sappy texture but somehow weightless, floating on a reservoir of such untapped depth and intensity. I guess that’s why the John Gilman tasting note said “2020-2085+” or something insane like that. I totally believe it but also would like to drink the wine while I’m still alive

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.

Apple, citrus, with some sweetness showing up at the end. Very nice.

Honeyed richness balanced with bright acid. What's to say? One of the best in the world. Lovely stuff.

Delicious. Apple, honeyed, lavender must. Sweet but not at all cloying. Super interesting.
