Deep, brooding nose combines aromas of exotic orange oil, pineapple and smoky bacon with hints of shoe polish and truffle. Then opulent and silky but almost magically fresh on the palate, with bracing acidity underscoring the purity of the apricot, tangerine, pear juice, peach jam, saffron and nutmeg flavors. This SGN seemed to grow even richer after a minute or two in the glass, with its explosive essence-of-fruit flavors complicated by marmaladey botrytis tones. Offers amazing balance for such a thick sweet wine (it's carrying a mind-boggling 380 g/l r.s.), along with great fruit intensity on the vibrant, extremely long and utterly mouthcoating finish. Unbelievable wine. 98+

This offers a heady nose, akin to a rose garden after the rain, and melts on your tongue with the texture of spun honey. Finely balanced, with a rich and smoky flavor profile offering notes of baked peach, pecan pie... This offers a heady nose, akin to a rose garden after the rain, and melts on your tongue with the texture of spun honey. Finely balanced, with a rich and smoky flavor profile offering notes of baked peach, pecan pie, beeswax, lemon meringue and candied ginger. Drink now through 2035. — A.N.
