Enticing aromas of mango guava yellow peach saffron minerals and honey complicated by high-toned botrytis. Rich dense and almost oily with intense ripe yellow fruit and honey flavors lifted by firm acidity. The finish boasts outstanding length and a bright lemony touch.

Planted to clay-limestone soil. Super bright and fresh the nose exhibits aromas of lemon and orange peel intermixed with tropical fruit followed by botrytis spice and toasted coconut. Very rich and full bodied the palate offers great depths of citrus fruit and deep creamy texture. This is all checked and balanced with glistening acids making for a very round superb wine. Enjoy through 2035.

A juicy, compact style, with tangerine, apricot, toasted almond and heather notes all rolled together at the core, waiting to unfurl fully through the unctuous, passion fruit-filled finish. Plenty remains in reserve, but this is hard to resist now. Drink now through 2030. – JM

There is a sense of steeliness to these aromatics. The palate is ripe and sweet on the entry, with racy lines of acidity and a judicious touch of spice. In a line-up of Sauternes, it lacks the flamboyance and sensuality of the appellation’s more sugar-laden offerings, but it has a class that cannot be denied. Drink now-2035. - NEAL MARTIN
