"92-95 points. Pale yellow-gold. Hugely ripe aromas of orange oil, apricot, roasted nuts and vanillin oak; conveys strong botrytis character. Unctuous, superrich and concentrated, with lively orange peel and fresh apricot flavors and uncommon verve for a wine of this sheer scale. The most concentrated and powerful of these '99s today. Finishes with great richness and palate-staining persistence."

4.5 stars "Deep golden color and intense nose of nuts, honey and dried apricots. On the palate, rich with a mouthfilling, unctuous texture and a long, lingering finish. Great with foie gras. "
