Pungently botrytized aromas feature game, honey, marmalade, clove oil, charred oak and a whiff of herbs. Very concentrated and very young; the wine impressively thick texture is leavened by lively acidity and tangy botrytis tones. The honey, mint, mineral, and fresh herbal flavors harmonize beautifully. Very long, smoky-oaky aftertaste. The best of these three vintages by a clear margin. Finished with lower alcohol (13.2%) and higher sugar (72 g/l) than either the '89 or '88.

The 1990 is less aromatic than the equally rated 1988, but richer and fuller-bodied. It has not lost any of its elegant, honeyed, botrytised style. Interestingly, at bottling the 1988 contained 13.5% alcohol and the 1990, 13.2%. The 1990 comes across as slightly fatter and richer. It will keep for three decades or more. This is a classic Sauterne that remains underpriced given the resurgence of this well-known estate.

Bright yellow color. Vivid aromas of lemon curd and honey, with a hint of almond. Medium- to full-bodied, medium sweet, with fresh acidity and a long, fruity aftertaste.
