SKU #999288 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Rich golden hue. Fragrant nose of butter and strawberries. Powerful palate. Fine acidity. Good level of botrytis. Intense honeyed finish. Lacks some finesse and sophistication but fine for this vintage. (NM)  (6/2001)

Wine Spectator

 Thick and ripe. Very golden, with an orange tint. Full-bodied and concentrated, with ripe apricot and lemon flavors. Quite chewy and delicious. (JS)  (11/1998)

K&L Notes

90+ points Richard Jennings: "...light gold color; light, faintly peachy nose; higher acid, medium-plus body, good grip, with resiny edges; medium-plus drying finish." (11/2006)

Other White Wines



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
