Behind the beautiful yellow gown, you will discover a traditional Sauternes, smooth and delicate, one that lingers long on the palate and possesses, depending on the vintage, the subtle flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, banana, vanilla, apricot, candied lemon, and even spices, prunes and honey.

Wine AdvocateThe 1989 exhibits aromas of honeyed pineapple/tropical fruit and toasty new oak, as well as an exotic, flashy perfume that is not as pronounced in either the 1990 or 1988. The 1989 exhibits less botrytis than the other two vintages. The wine possesses an opulent, full-bodied, exotic, lavishly rich personality, moderate sweetness, and huge quantity of extract, glycerin, and alcohol in its finish. The wine is also extremely young and unevolved. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2025.

Wine SpectatorPretty floral, lilac and lemon flavors, turning a bit short on the finish.
