Toffee dried lemon rind and tropical fruit on the nose. Full-bodied and very sweet with a dense palate of candied fruit and a long sweet finish. Very concentrated. The botrytis spice creeps up on the finish. Best after... Toffee dried lemon rind and tropical fruit on the nose.

Musky very fresh aromas of crystallized citrus peel minerals and toasted bread. The palate offers incredible sappy concentration and a saline aspect not to mention a penetrating quality rare for this fruit-driven year. In fact this begins almost light then builds inexorably toward the back finishing with a tactile impression of extract and an extraordinary sweetness that almost reminded me of the Suduiraut that I tasted just before it. Should go on for decades. 94+

The deep color implies how richly draped this wine is in botrytis; its exotic scents and complex flavors bear the stamp as well. Honey more honey and a little hazelnut in the end. Voluptuous now this wine's complexity... The deep color implies how richly draped this wine is in botrytis; its exotic scents and complex flavors bear the stamp as well. Honey more honey and a little hazelnut in the end. Voluptuous now this wine's complexity will gain prominence with age.

Intensely rich very perfumed wine full of apples and honey flavors. There is also fresh fruit but the richness dominates showing some dry botrytis flavors to finish.

Highly spiced but also a little floral. Intense bitter orange highly concentrated very rich and thick and mouth-filling and less fresh than some vintages but still balanced in a richer more rounded and powerful style... Highly spiced but also a little floral. Intense bitter orange highly concentrated very rich and thick and mouth-filling and less fresh than some vintages but still balanced in a richer more rounded and powerful style. Needs more age to add complexity and balance that richness. 18.5+/20 (JH)
