Saturnes, France

Tasting notes: 

100 Wine Spectator Like lemon curd on the nose that turns to honey and caramel. Full-bodied, very sweet with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palate. #1 Wine of the year.

***** Decanter Magazine (stars)  A complex, powerful bouquet of opulent candied fruits. The palate has great beauty –it is rich and complex, yet fresh.

99 Robert M. Parker Jr. Fabulous perfume of honeysuckle, smoky oak, caramelized tropical fruits, creme brulee, and Grand Marnier.

100 JamesSuckling.com This is a crazy wine! It's sweet, but not sugary. Mushrooms, furniture wax, spices then dried oranges, lemons, pineapples, and just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with great density and power, yet balanced and refined. So amazing, but give this five to six years still. Pull the cork in 2016. 145 grams RS.
