2009 VINTAGE

88 Fresh, with a nice floral spine holding the green melon, white peach and yellow apple fruit together. The lively finish shows nice length. Drink now. 1,500 cases made. –JM
89 A rich wine from a fine Sauternes year. It has honey, sweet orange marmalade and just enough freshness. At the same time, there is enough botrytis to give a good dry edge. With its weight and bit of spice, it could age. — R.V. (2/1/2012)
  2009 which offers a delicious buttons candied yellow fruit, crystallized citrus and exotic fruits. The mouth has a delicate sweetness with a balance in place.
