Sauternes, Premier Grand Cru Classé Supérieur
The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a slight richness. It reveals notes of pear, ripe red apple and slight hints of mirabelle, quince, apricot associated with discreet hints of citrus, honey as well as slight hints of flowers. The palate is fruity, fine, sleek, well-balanced and offers a beautiful minerality, a slight richness, fat as well as fleshy. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of compoted pear, apple compote and candied lemon associated with slight hints of zests, apricot as well as a very discreet hint of vanilla in the background. Good length. A style more «stewed/compoted» than on millesimes 2014 and 2015, but always well-balanced. Beautiful and suave persistence with slight touches of dried apricot.
