96 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2008
(10% alcohol, 290 g/l r.s. and 5.4 acidity) Pale gold. Pure, high-toned, rot-ennobled aromas of apricot, orange marmalade, pineapple and honey. Wonderfully thick yet tangy on the palate, with rampant, pure botrytis giving the wine superb verve in spite of its extraordinarily chewy texture. More glyceral and saline than the Vignoble d'Epfig SGN, but with a silkier texture and greater complexity and verve that must come from this quartz-rich sandy soil. Although this wine pours as thickly as motor oil, from its palate-saturating, gripping finish I would never have guessed that it's nearly 30% sugar.
