97 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2006

($87; for 375 ml.) Medium golden yellow. Aromas of tropical fruits, honey, vanilla and lichee are complemented by discreet and noble oak, with fully ripe peach joining in on the palate. The wine's substantial residual sugar is perfectly integrated and leavened by refreshing acidity. It is rare that a wine with 275 grams per liter of residual sweetness can remain so easy to drink, but this exceptionally harmonious and luxuriously creamy wine should remain young and playful for many years. Drink 2008 through 2030.
