Tasting Notes

The 1990 is less aromatic than the equally rated 1988, but richer and fuller-bodied. It has not lost any of its elegant, honeyed, botrytised style. Interestingly, at bottling the 1988 contained 13.5% alcohol and the 1990, 13.2%. The 1990 comes across as slightly fatter and richer. It will keep for three decades or more. This is a classic Sauterne that remains under-priced given the resurgence of this well-known estate.
