WineDiva's Review

Seductive, supple, delightful.

This is a classic Bordelais sticky (made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle) that was aged roughly two years in barrel. I like to serve it chilled, but not enough to dumb down the seductive aromas of apricot jelly, honey, chamomile lowers, lemon meringue, golden pineapple and praline. The palate is equally opulent, but not cloying. Excellent concentration, supple weight and oily texture; it also has delightful acidity to add levity and freshness.
A lengthy sipper, perfect for fruit tarts, ripe cheeses and desserts with a praline base.
