50 cl, often from Le Grand Val at St-Pierre, noble rot grapes, fermented, raised new oak 12 months, residual sugar 40 gm per litre, first wine 1994
golden fruit nose, floral/pear aspects. Quite well-directed, oranges/marmalade. Has acidity, clean finish. Chewy finale, with citrus/bergamot.

NOT PRODUCED, like 1998, 1995
gold tints; pear, brown sugar aromas, a fresh baked apple, spice and apricot – this is a pretty bouquet. The palate starts fatly, has a big taste, the texture like massage oil. It does its job straight away, so desn`t even need to follow through – the first impact is the business, since it tapers, lacks acidity. Is a dessert on its own. It is heavier than a Sauternes, as it should be. Something of a one-off. Oct 2005, Copenhagen
pears, also some apricot aroma. Bit sticky, fat but cloys. Savoury, tasty wine. Flashy, showy wine but nice. Oaked finish.
