Fully mature with a burnished feel to the wax verbena dried orange peel and roasted almond notes. Picks up a flash of walnut on the still-rich finish. Drink now. 1665 cases made.

The 2000 is quite deep in color. The nose is crisp and well-defined but not the most complex, as you would expect from a truly challenging growing season in Sauternes. It is pleasant in its own way with delicate scents of tangerine, yellow flowers and Mirabelle. The palate is well-balanced with marmalade tinged opening. I like the acidity here, an Yquem with good race, although it does feel a little tapered toward the finish. Drink now-2025. Tasted March 2014. - NEAL MARTIN
