Medium-bodied, floral, fresh and tropical, with the right amount of honeyed pineapple, orange, flowers and spice paired with bracing acidity. This sweet treat will offer delicious sweet drinking for at least 2 decades.

Obviously youthful, but I like checking these sweet wines out in their youth. The wine is rich, sweet and fleshy, but there is enough lift and vibrance to keep the all vanilla, honeyed pineapple, apricots, white peach and honeysuckle up on its feet. This should start rocking by its 10th birthday.

With a distinctive floral edge to the candied orange, apricot, papaya and pineapple fruits. Medium bodied, with acidity and honeyed sweetness, with time, perhaps this will put on weight.

Bright, fresh, forward, lushly textured and already showing its honeyed apricot, pineapple, candied orange rind, canned peach and floral characteristics. This will be even better with another 5-8 years in the bottle.

Layers of honey coated orange, pineapple, apricot and tangerine, with elements of spice and vanilla to mix things up. Sweet, soft and forward, this value priced Sauternes can be drunk now, or aged for at least a decade or more.

This is a wine I seldom get to taste. There was a nice honeyed, tropical fruit, orange marmelade and candied lemon quality to the wine. Good freshness and a sweet finish were in abundance. I wish the finish was just a bit longer.

Perhaps a bit more on the candied, orange and tangerine side, than on the tropical range of fruits, there is still a lot to like. Floral, fresh and honeyed, with custard overtones, the medium bodied, wine is bright, almost zippy in the sweet, honey coated, apricot finish.

Showing perfectly today, this medium bodied, honeyed wine displays a personality of apricot, brioche, orange rind, pineapple and vanilla, with lift to keep it fresh and fun to drink. There is no hurry to drink it, but there is also no reason to continue to age this much longer, as it is drinking at peak and I suspect it will slowly lose its sweet tropical quality over the next several years.
