A rich gold colour, good balance with neither sweetness nor acidity overpowering. Le Mont is my favourite cru in the range. White fruit on the palate and decent length of maybe 10+ seconds. Nice, but I did much prefer the 2018, perhaps this has closed a bit or just vintage variation. I’ll leave the rest of the case for a year or two.

As per previous bottle. So good you want to swim in it.

Pure pleasure—waves of flavor washing over your palate like the tide. Great acidity, brilliant color, sweet without being cloying. With the ubiquity of varied and spiced cuisines these days, you’d think sweet wines would be having a moment. Yet nearly every restaurant list is bone-dry until the dessert and the saddest job in wine is slinging Sauternes. May these wines stay ever unfashionable (if oddly, in coke-swilling America) so that we can continue to afford them.

Loved. Sweet but lovely with multi-course dinner at Le Bernadin. Fruity with apple notes.
