The 2009 is one of the greatest wines ever produced from the estate. It has a riveting bouquet of quince, honey, pear and a touch of clarified butter that is beautifully defined, offering scents of yellow flowers with continued aeration. It is a little heavier and more intense than its peers at this stage. The palate is beautifully balanced with perfectly judged acidity and immense purity. The finish offers crisp honey, quince and clementine notes laden with botrytis that is counterpoised by wonderful acidity. It possesses an unerring sense of completeness and composure that is irresistible. Bravo! Drink now-2050. - Neal Martin

This is loaded with gorgeous papaya mango yellow apple and creamed peach flavors carried by salted caramel toasted coconut and ginger cream notes. Very long on the finish this just sails on and on. Showing terrific range... This is loaded with gorgeous papaya mango yellow apple and creamed peach flavors carried by salted caramel toasted coconut and ginger cream notes. Very long on the finish this just sails on and on. Showing terrific range and depth this has a long life ahead of it. Best from 2014 through 2035. Tasted twice with consistent notes. -JM

The new-wood smokiness is an important element of this creamy-textured wine. The richness bares flavors of honey, botrytis, almond and orange peel. Ripe and age worthy, this wine's opulence is just beginning to show.

Yummy young Sauternes with caramel, honey, dried apples, pears, and tarte tatin. Full body, layered and compacted. Medium sweet and a flavorful finish. So much to come still. Give it three or four years to understand all... Yummy young Sauternes with caramel, honey, dried apples, pears, and tarte tatin. Full body, layered and compacted.

92% semillon 8% sauvignon blanc. Aged for 18 months in oak 50% new. Less sweet with citrus honeydew and mineral flavors. This is already approachable now and will age well over the next two decades
