Ripe, very ripe, and over ripe pineapples, mangos, candied oranges, apricot, flowers, honey, and marmalade create the intoxicating perfume. Perfectly perched between its decadently, sweet side, and its raciness on the other side, this is sublime. The roasted passion fruits, mangos, apricots, pineapple, roasted cashews, and saffron on the palate are all slathered with honey. This has the potential to be a future legendary sweet wine. If this is your thing, grab it as only 1,200 cases were produced. It is going to be stunning on release. But if you prefer your sweet wines with age, this will evolve for 3 or more decades. The wine blends 95% Semillon with 5% Sauvignon Blanc. Drink from 2025-2055. 97-99 Pts.

Vanilla, pineapple, honey, flowers and overripe apricot create the nose but it is the density, sweetness and purity of fruit along with the piercing acidity and length that make this wine a standout. The harvest, which took place September 25 through October 12, was the shortest picking period in the history of the chateau. Close to 20% of the vineyard was damaged by frost this year. The Grand Vin was made from only 50% of the harvest.

Vibrant and refreshing there is a nice splash of honey, vanilla bean, tropical fruit and crushed rocks on the palate and in the refreshing finish. Similar to the bottle with the Lalique insert used for their Sauternes, this makes a stunning presentation at your table.

I like Sauternes when it's mature and when it's on the young side. And there's nothing wrong with that, as variety is the spice of life. Right? This already a delicious, sweet treat that pops with apricot, pineapple and white nectarines topped with vanilla, honey and roasted nuts. Fresh, vibrant, sweet and lush, with a tropical slant in the finish, this is only going to get better over the years.

There was so much chocolate in this beauty, you could think it was a hundred year old, vintage Port! Add to that, honey coated oranges, caramel, brown sugar, butterscotch, breakfast tea with a few tablespoons of honey and you start to get the idea about the bouquet.
