Reviews

2009

Golden colour. Dense nose of roasted fruits, honey and beeswax. The palate combines subtlety and concentration; the texture is delicate, with a nice freshness. The finish is condensed with roasted aromas. A nice bottle.

2008

A range of dried fruits, muscat and yellow peach flavours. An elegant and tasty palate balanced with citrus peel and herbal tea.

Nice golden colour. A very engaging fresh nose with oak and vanilla notes and hints of white flowers and almond. On the palate, this wine is dense, smooth and pleasantly harmonious. Its aromas are promising even at this young age. A nice bottle.

2005

The vineyard’s soil of clay and gravel still transpires in this wine. Very floral with some dried fruits and honeyed scents. This classic Sauternes is thick yet nicely balanced and should be stored in the cellar straightaway.
Guide Hachette

Golden colour. A strong, fruity nose with citrus and blood orange hints. Sharp and vivid palate, with pleasant exotic fruit flavours.

2003

2003 has a subtle bouquet, with classic vanilla and wax aromas; it proves more expressive on the palate with great suppleness, generosity and balance.
Guide Hachette

The colour is deep gold, almost orange. The nose is exotic with spicy and very ripe fruit hints. A nicely dense and fresh palate with vivid and long flavours. The finish is fruit jelly, orange rind and sweet spices. A very nice vintage.
