Brilliant showing for this wine.  Showing a hint of age at 16 years from vintage.  Golden in color.  The nose is clean with Crème brûlée, minerality and slight red fruits.  Medium to full bodied.  Viscous.  On the palate, this is sweet and rich but enough acidity to cut through it.  The Crème brûlée comes thru to the palate but very concentrated.  Long finish.  Delicious.  This is great on its own or with some cheeses.  Should have no problem going another fifteen to twenty years.
