Push and pull through the palate, buidling a sense of contrast and momentum, juicy and rich texture, this is powerful, with apricot puree, white truffles, grilled almonds, citrus and peach flesh. Excellent grip though the palate. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

This is intense and compact with lots of mushroom, ginseng, lemon grass, dried lemon peel, tangerine, clove and white chocolate. Green mango, too. Complex and layered. Sweet, but with a savory edge and fantastic freshness. The sweetness is hidden by the botrytis power. Extremely long.

Deep copper. Rich and that preserved-meat/salami note again that I detected on the Doisy-Daene 2021. Really fresh and captivating. Dense and almost electric in its intensity. Surely a selection of a selection? A Sauternes higher in acidity than most. - Jancis Robinson
