Classic Sauternes, treading the fine line between sweetness and elegance. Initially, it seems to be dominated by the botrytis, but then sweet fruits also show, with ripe yellow fruits, honey and almonds, touched with citrus. As it develops, the wine will become richer and more intense.— (6/1/2008)

A return to top form for this great cru. The nose is very perfumed and unctuous. The wine has great richness and beautiful concentration; not quite finished but the potential shines through.
