Deep yellow-gold. Knockout nose offers stone fruits, ripe pineapple, marzipan and nutmeg. Very rich, ripe and chewy, with a glyceral texture and sweetness rare for this sauvignon-rich Sauternes. A core of nectar-like peach flavor is framed and lifted by a pungent minerality that accentuates the purity of the fruit. Wonderfully concentrated wine with a very long, sweet, palate-staining finish. This property was recently purchased by a group that includes Xavier Planty, Stephan von Neipperg and Olivier Bernard.

Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not to drink it now. 8,000 cases made.
