96-99 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2008
Yellow-gold. An essence of fruity noble rot on the nose: racy pineapple, apricot, orange, honey. Then extraordinarily dense and vibrant, with huge pineappley acidity giving verve and precision to the wonderfully unctuous, incredibly sweet flavors (the residual sugar is reportedly more than 200 grams per liter!). The combination of thickness and verve here is mindboggling. Perhaps most impressive on the bracing, incredibly long and almost painful finish, which throws off flavors of pineapple, honey and toast. With this wine's level of sweetness and acidity, it should evolve in bottle for decades. One of the best young Barsacs-or botrytis wines from anywhere-I've ever tasted.
