Oh, so good. Elegant, fresh, complex, more Barsac than Sauternes. Very exotic too with flowers and spices.
If you are into Sauternes or Barsac buy a case or two, it does not get much better than this. Fantastic now but no rush.

Very complex and long, a cross between Sauternes fruity style with Barsac floral style. Unctuous, rich, but balanced and fresh, ready to drink but really no rush. A top notch noble rot bottle.
