Lots of lemon curd and vanilla character, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, sweet and very fresh, with a spicy, honey aftertaste. A beautifully balanced Sauternes. Spicy and chunky on the finish. Best after 2008. 3,500... Lots of lemon curd and vanilla character, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, sweet and very fresh, with a spicy, honey aftertaste. A beautifully balanced Sauternes.

Superripe and moderately thick but with sound acids giving it excellent balance. Flavors of toffee, caramel, honey, grilled nuts and spicy oak. The very long finish features a superripe suggestion of marzipan but also lovely limey lift. 91(+?) points

Very sweet, sexy flavors of peach, vanilla and coconut. Finishes dense, thick and very long, with strong oakiness and building fruit. 90-93 points

Medium gold-colored with a greenish nuance, this is a fruit bomb-styled Sauternes revealing aromas of smoky oak overlaying orange marmalade characteristics. Uncomplicated, sweet, rich, concentrated, obvious, and blatantly commercial, it will drink well for 10-12 years.</P>

Light gold with a gorgeous nose of tropical fruits, caramel, spice, and honey, this rich, intense, full-bodied Sauternes is moderately sweet with good acidity and loads of fruit and flesh. Anticipated maturity:...
