This is a late harvest wines made from Chenin Blanc grapes in the Loire Valley, France.  12% abv.  Very pretty in the glass with a deep golden color, clear and bright.  The nose has orange zest, honey apricots and sea air.  Full bodied.  Good acidity.  On the palate, this is sweet and is probably best served as a dessert wine.  Not cloying.  Notes of apricots and slight honey.  Long finish.  Deep and complex.  This will drink well on its own, but would work great with less sweet dessert such as a simple cookie or a Polenta Cake.  Sweet Chenin Blanc wines can last a long time.  This is already twenty years old, but should be able to do another ten to twenty if well stored.
