Wine Review: This wine opens with a fresh, aromatic bouquet. On the palate, the wine is rich, creamy, and well balanced. There are absolutely no hard edges at all with this wine. The finish is terrific. It is exceptionally long and won me over. A perfect wine for that perfect occasion. This is exactly the kind of wine we are always in search of at KensWineGuide.com. Enjoy – we did. – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "This is one of our wines that simply stops me in my tracks with its aroma of rich, ripe very pear; something like smelling the skin peeled freshly from the flesh of the fruit. In the mouth it is deep, hefty yet young and bright as a stone glinting in the sun. Its fine richness persists strongly into the palate, along with the balanced and slightly toasted complement from the barrels of the great Tonnellerie Sirugue." – Bob Sessions
