An exam wine, this one. Great to taste a Jurançon alongside Sauternes and others, to get the distinguishing characteristics. Mid-deep gold – depth of colour for youthfulness. Raw quince aromatics notable, with vegetal and smoky minerality, that on warming became almost meaty – very distinctive. Ripe quince and spice on the palate, with preserved lemon. Some vanilla cream. Tropical pineapple on the mid-palate, with a bitter twist to the finish. Only medium body for the fully sweet (110 g/L? [actually 87 g/L]) palate. Moderate length.
