Bright deep straw colour with pale gold hue. The nose delivers strong botrytis character with aromas of honeycomb, ripe apricot and spiced honey with some dried raisin end notes. Luscious mouthfeel with very concentrated flavours of honeyed apricot, tropical fruits, marmalade and spice with a clean dry finish. Excellent length with long aftertaste of honeyed apricot, marmalade and spice. Tasted against the 2005 Le Tetre, this wine displayed an extra degree of richness and mouthfeel.
Drink over the next 5-6 years (2011-2017).
