2004 and 2003 Sauternes and Barsacs (Jul 2006)

Pale color. Intriguing, complex, slightly reduced nose hints at mirabelle, smoke, truffle, minerals and menthol. Fat and full in the mouth, but currently a bit low-toned, with a complicating fusel nuance. Today the element of vanillin oak is quite apparent. Rather unctuous for the property and for the vintage.
