Tasted three times - last time in April 2005. Consistent notes. Some of the participants in the tasting found this wine oxidized or corked, which I strongly disagreed with. Well, in the beginning it had a chemical/medicinal aroma (sulphur), but this unpleasant odour disappeared very quickly. Light golden. Classic botrytis, pure and intense, acacia honey with pear and pineapple, “oily” texture, great depth and nuance richness.  It showed gorgeous length and long aftertaste. This is a truly splendid wine, which can spend 15-25 years more in the cellar.
