Robert Parker - 87-88 See more...
A cool, light-bodied wine with a greenish hue to its light gold color, this ripe, medium-bodied Barsac reveals pain grille notes along with fresh, citrusy tropical fruit, medium body, some sweetness, and a clean, pure finish. It is a good all-purpose Barsac to drink as an aperitif, with food, or after dinner with dessert. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018.
