  • What the experts say...

    [Ce vin] se révèle très botrytisé, avec des arômes profonds et pénétrants d'ananas caramélisé, de vanille, de grillé et de pêche crémeuse. Plus longiligne, il est également très corsé et d'une richesse opulente, et une finale crémeuse et intense. L'ensemble est étayé par une heureuse acodoté. (...) Source: Robert Parker (3/90)

    Cuvée presentation

    This luscious, almost syrupy dessert wine is powerful, very rich and complex. A very fine wine.
