Decadently delicious aged Barsac. Possessing a beautiful medium amber color, this profound wine has transcended the easy fruitiness of youth and evolved into a tremendously rich and complex classic. Intense honeyed Botrytis up front along with sensationally rich pineapple, apricot, liquified almonds, and a melange of other tropical fruits and spices. Perfect acid balance keeps this wine from being remotely cloying. This is a deep, weighty, complex, majestic dessert wine. - HK, GK 2006-06-15
