Tasting Notes

Very rich and direct on the nose. Lots of botrytis. Very, very sweet and the acidity just struggles to assert itself. Very rich but zingy aswell. Powerful but not hot. Quite open already on the nose but there is a lot here. BIG wine! Drink 2016-28

Score: 18+Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2006

Very pure and fresh, elegant botrytis fruit on the nose. Very long flavour, rich without being too sweet; really fine and quite restrained at present. 4 stars
