Quite a serious number. Complex and layered, a little oily. First hits you with a clear buttery/toasty punch, which quickly airs out leaving a vinous, Moscato-like nose with hints of tropical fruit. Evident residual sugar. Relatively small production, new French oak every 4 years (no clue how they mix it though). Needs age. Could be very interesting.
