Multiple tastings of barrels and two micro-blends with Bérénice Lurton at the château and each one more breathtaking than the last! An intensely minerally nose with astounding delineation and poise with hints of wild honey, orange-blossom and a little almond. The palate displays brilliant balance, so much so that the 150-160gms/L residual is barely noticeable. A sublime viscous, honeyed, peach-tinged finish that leaves the palate tingling with glee. To quote my own words: ..it encapsulates everything you love about Sauternes… Bravo Bérénice. Drink 2010-2050+ Tasted April 2008
