Straw-gold. Marzipan, honey and toasted hazelnut on the nose. Moderately viscous and currently rather oaky. Has an impressively chewy texture but is not yet displaying its personality. Finishes with some youthful harshness. The '97 is at once stronger and finer.

Very pure botrytis aromas. Massively sweet – a real statement – but with lots of interest and subtlety on the finish. Real follow-through, and a bit of burnt caramel on the finish. So powerful! Great balance and confidence. Very long indeed. Not Charles’s favourite!

This wine offers an orange, caramel, and honeyed nose with intriguing quince/kumquat fruit flavors, a complex personality, and a low level of glycerin in the mouth. This medium to full-bodied, long wine will be at its peak between 2000-2020.

Deep yellow straw color - not as amber as I would hope to see.
Very nice nose - from memory - citrus (orange/lemon) with honey and peaches.
Mouth was great. Not quite as complex as I might have wished for, but certainly good enough for the meal and dessert! Perhaps a bit short on the finish... Although I don't believe it will get much better than it is now, glad I have a couple more bottles to check on development later.
