Not so sweet on the nose. In addition to the grape notes, there is also a lot of seasoning and also alk. Some vanilla and dark honey
Mouth: sweet and tart approach. Strong and oily, but drinkable despite 60%. You can clearly see the Sauternes. A little mountain cheese, grapes, honey, herb meadow and lots of wood.
Yes, you can tell that it is fully ripened. Looks more violent than 10y suggest.
Departure is long. Dry but also grape notes remain on the palate.
I think the malt is very successful. Absolutely not mainstream, quite complex and definitely one of the better Sauternes I've had so far. Fortunately CS and not reduced.
Edradour and Weincasks just fits.
