Knockout aromas of creme brulee coconut vanilla bean honey and orange peel. Lush and seductively silky in the mouth; its creamy seamless texture makes it seem deceptively accessible today but sound acid structure should keep it going for 20 years or more. Not hugely sweet or tropical but very complex and fine. Firm hazelnutty finish offers great length if not quite the grip of the '89. 95 points

Vibrant medium gold core with amber flecks at the rim. Initial aromas of toasted coconut lead to pineapple and slightly darker notes of burnt sugar dried stone fruits orange rind and honey. Flavors of lemon curd vanilla... Vibrant medium gold core with amber flecks at the rim. Initial aromas of toasted coconut lead to pineapple and slightly darker notes of burnt sugar dried stone fruits orange rind and honey. Flavors of lemon curd vanilla and burnt sugar are balanced with good texture and moderate sweetness while firm acidity and bright spice from noticeable botrytis levels keeps this hightoned and youthful. Will continue to improve with more years in bottle and drink wonderfully for another 10+.
