Like standing in an apricot orchard during harvest. Pure ripe apricot, pear blossom, cotton candy, bitter almond, peach liquer. Satiny texture floats over the tongue and mouth. So bright. Serious acid makes this weightless and beautiful.

A few days later...and the remains of the Sauternes was still liquid gold. Love how this wine holds on and keeps on delivering.

A double 100. Delivered on the scores and the notoriety. Served with pumpkin soufflé and was magical combination. Almost syrup like in viscosity. Honey. Tangerine. Chestnuts.

Another killer Wednesday Wine Committee lineup. As always, 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind. Hard to not guess this as Sauternes! Everything about this was in perfect harmony. In fact, it probably merits a higher score than I gave it. Oozes fresh honey over ripe guava, white peach and orange blossoms. Big and powerful. Honey roasted cashews, honeycomb and graham cracker on the finish. Delightful.

Boom. Liquid gold. Just so pretty. Unctuous, golden apricots, spicy botrytis.

Drinking quite nice at the moment. Still a lot of richness waiting to evolve.

Vintage 2001 / Botrytis Par Ecellence. Clove. Apricot. Caramel. Honey. Heavenly, with that characteristic stinking tone of the pourriture noble. Syrupy structure. A treat! With lots and lots of life ahead.
