"The 2016 Sauternes from one of the greatest of all estates. You quickly understand every mouthful, so deliciouslyo n-song is it. No, it doesn’t have the depth and complexity of the grand vin, but nor does it have the eye-watering price tag, and for those in search of a starry end to a meal,look no further."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine

Still pale in colour, but starting to take on an attractive golden sheen. Striking aromas of apricot,peach and pear with pronounced honeyed notes. Certainly sweet, but not cloying, and perfectly balanced with a tangy preserved lemon and nectarine freshness. Intense tarte tatin flavours with a splash of creme fraiche, a hint of roasted nuts and a long, rewarding finish.
