Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Lovely clean botrytis on the nose, along with aromas of sugared lemon and lime. Peachy, very pretty nose that includes some toasty wood. Very sweet and rich on the palate (as one might expect from a neighbour of Yquem). Pastille-like fruit of peach and pear juice. Really spicy at the finish, showing good minerality. Huge and viscous texture and the all-important dry finish. One could drink this now with enormous pleasure. There's a sudden impression of small oranges. No heaviness here. Lovely. Note taken during primeurs week

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained

Sweetness

All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
