Enticing aromas of mango guava yellow peach saffron minerals and honey complicated by high-toned botrytis. Rich dense and almost oily with intense ripe yellow fruit and honey flavors lifted by firm acidity. The finish boasts outstanding length and a bright lemony touch.

This has power in reserve but relies more on its acidity with juicy tangerine clementine pear and mango notes laced with a hint of green almond. The finish is long pure and fresh. -J.M.

Planted to clay-limestone soil. Super bright and fresh the nose exhibits aromas of lemon and orange peel intermixed with tropical fruit followed by botrytis spice and toasted coconut. Very rich and full bodied the palate offers great depths of citrus fruit and deep creamy texture. This is all checked and balanced with glistening acids making for a very round superb wine. Enjoy through 2035.

There is a sense of steeliness to these aromatics. The palate is ripe and sweet on the entry, with racy lines of acidity and a judicious touch of spice. In a line-up of Sauternes, it lacks the flamboyance and sensuality of the appellation’s more sugar-laden offerings, but it has a class that cannot be denied. Drink now-2035. - NEAL MARTIN

Very pale greenish gold. Very tense. Still embryonic at the moment. In fact the acidity is rather dominant. Really gripped in there for future development. RS 139 g/l TA 4.05 g/l. 17.5 out of 20
