Lea & Sandeman review
This is quite delicious! A lovely combination of ripeness, sweetness, rich texture and finesse. So drinkable and very moreish.
Other reviews and comments
Tasted twice with two negotiants, one more disjointed that the other. This actually lacks the vigour of the Doisy-Védrines on the nose. Honey, pineapple, a touch of buttered toast and vanilla pod: all a little pinched at the moment. The palate shows real promise: full-bodied, rich and with admirable levels of botrytized fruits. Acacia honey, lemon, orange peel with a very fresh, unctuous finish. Great length. Superb. Tasted March 2007.

Our sample was slightly out of focus, but I heard of others which showed beautifully. There were citrus fruit flavours and an attractive, musky quality to the fruit with only moderate concentration, but, as usual, great finesse. From 2010.
The flagship sweet wine of Professor Denis Dubourdieu, this is a beautifully made wine and one of the best I have tasted from the chateau. The wine, which is usually about 70% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon, and the rest Muscadelle, exhibits a bold, opulent style with gobs of fruit, some honeyed peach, apricot, and pineapple notes, an elegant yet substantial mouthfeel, and superb purity backed up the zesty acidity, giving the wine a laser-like focus. It is moderately sweet and by no means cloying at all. This is a gorgeous wine, probably not among the longest-lived of the vintage, but it has at least 20 years left in it.
