Tasting Notes

This dessert wine is nothing short of spectacular, with a modern nose offering yellow fruits, exotics and apple. Notes of honey and spice add intrigue to an already complex array of aromas. With a fine texture on the mouth, supple, long and oh so smooth, this elegant wine finishes fresh and clean, just what you want in a stickie with considerable residual sugar. Nothing cloying here! This one is ideal with tarte Tatin.

    Who needs Sauternes when you can drink this? I mean seriously...(Clyde, if you're reading, I'm just joking). Terrific moelleux from a brilliant producer's effort in the excellent '89 vintage in Vouvray. Mandarin aromas, just a touch lactic, lead to lively flavors of tinned orange citrus fruit. Wonderful acidity and persistence on the finish. A classic.

    The first whiffs of this wine are sublime in a way that no red wine can ever be. Honey, fruit, and citrus all intermingle themselves into a complexity that cannot be justly expressed. If you think I'm being ridiculous it gets better. The palate is salty, sweet and savory simultaneously. Find me another wine that does that! If you find the right cheese, you might have a transformative experience, a religous breakthrough.
