This is initially very muted on the nose, but it unfurls seductively with subtle, perfumed aromas of lime leaf, white peach, fresh apricot and touches of white flowers: very pretty and well defined. The palate is beautifully balanced, so pure and succinct with wonderful precision towards the vibrant, white peach and apricot finish. This is a wonderful Sauternes and one of their best wines in recent years. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate April 2010

Tasted blind, I (incorrectly) discerned a Barsac-inspired bouquet adorned with rich honeyed scents combining with aromas of marmalade and white flowers with continued aeration. It is certainly an intense bouquet that shows impressive clarity. The palate is gorgeous: thickly layered honeyed notes with hints of orange zest, white peach and mandarin. It is a Sauternes full of volume and breeding, maintaining great precision on the finish. It just needs a little more persistency on the aftertaste. Drink now-2035. eRobertParker.com.February, 2013

Sliced pear and apple, with honey and spices. Full-bodied, with apple pie and honey flavors and a pretty finish

Light and sweet on the nose. A bit lighter and tarter than many though still with some vivacity. Glucose flavours. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Super rich and unctuous, not as disciplined by the barrel as others, excellent acidity, necessary for a very long ageing, long, intense, promising
