Like lemon curd on the nose, turning to honey and caramel. Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. This is absolutely mind-blowing. This is the greatest young Sauternes I have ever tasted. Best after 2010... Wine Spectator

We had the 2001, not the 2003. Almost a triple 100 pointer and the WS 2004 WOTY. So much fun and so good. Doesn't quite have the weight, viscosity, and finish of an Dyquem but still has tremendous flavor. Everything you would expect from a top notch Sauternes
