86-88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2008
(a blend of botrytis-affected "sylvaner, pinot blanc et al"; aging in foudre Full gold. Somewhat Sauternes-like aromas of tropical fruits and honey, with a suggestion of bitter botrytis. Sweet and thick, with firm acidity framing its exotic orange peel and mango flavors, but betrays a slightly bitter edge in the mouth and on the aftertaste. Glyceral-rich but not particularly fresh or delineated in the middle palate. Not the best botrytis here.
