Beautifully decadent. Liquid gold in the glass, wafts of pineapple, vanilla, and apricot on the nose. Fat, rich mouthfeel, without being sticky or clinging. Wonderfully complex layers of fruit, spice, and caramel. Long, long delicately balanced finish.

Actually, 3.9 stars. Color, this sauternes has a nice, deep, golden color, very appealing. On the nose, very complex, dried apricot, caramel, honey, classic nose! Midpalate, oil think, full bodied, dried apricot and honey are interacting harmoniously, it completely covers my tongue. Finish, very smooth, textured, nice complexity, lingering in the mouth (50+ seconds), round, and well balanced. Overall, this sauternes is very well made. It has a lot of potential. It is young and has not peaked yet. I'd recommend you put it away for 40 even 60 more years! It will only get better over time. I am 93+ on this effort now. I can see it as 95 pointer in 30+ years from now. Happy drinking!
