This wine exhibits a syrupy pineapple-scented nose, medium body, moderate sweetness, and a fruit-driven personality with little complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2017.
This wine is an uninspiring, mainstream, blatantly commercial example of Sauternes.

Restrained aromas of orange peel, lime, pineapple and spicy oak. Cooler flavors of spice, peach and dried fruits. Very good but not outstanding intensity and concentration. But very well balanced, and persistent on the finish. Honey and marzipan notes give the back end a lovely sweetness.
You can allow all or manage them individually.
