Wine Description

(From 1997 Vintage) The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) This has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple & Jonagold apple flavors all melded together & gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers & dried citrus notes.
