It has a very well defined, almost understated nose with white peach, apricot and lime leaf: very pretty and succinct. The palate is very well balanced, beautifully defined with real minerality showing through the viscous, botrytized fruit. Great tension here, effortlessly counterbalancing the richness to perfection.

Rich and spicy through the finish, with great energy. Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Best from 2014 through 2030. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. -JM

Focused and dense on the palate with a tart freshness. Layered, orange liqueur notes of Cointreau add depth and gravity. This dense, ripe Sauternes is lovely and rich now, and will certainly improve over the next decade and more.
