  1. 94 Wine Spectator Notes

    Tropically ripe, with dense yet creamy layers of guava, mango, lychee and papaya, all stitched with racy lemon cream and candied grapefruit peel notes. Frangipane-framed finish pumps out wave after wave of unctuous fruit. Starting to hits its second gear, and with old-school Yquem power and muscle. Drink now through 2032. 5,000 cases made. -James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

  2. 95 Wine Advocate Notes

    A blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc with 128 gms/L residual, this is a very good Sauternes for the vintage and for me, superior to the slightly blowsy 2003. A creamy, honeyed nose with hints of almond, apple-blossom and hazelnut. Very good lift. He palate is well-balanced with good acidity, touches of frangipane, honey, quince and Satsuma. Very elegant on the finish with superb length, though you could argue that it does not have the persistency and penetration of the 01. Still, very attractive indeed. -Neal Martin
