Corked bottle, Millesime 2010j12601 (13473) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Light amber color. Deep aroma of caramel and concentrated apple juice, lively. Very sweet, yet not too syrupy; concentrated apple juice dominates the flavor, a bit of caramel, with a high degree of acidity, and ending like a good caramelized tarte tatin. Components are getting stronger, for a bold and long final.
Less complex than the best ones, but still wonderful.
Bottle of the 2010 edition split with my wife, $35/375ml and entirely worth it. Pours a clear tawny amber, sticks to the glass with long legs. Soft acid, big apple caramel, a hint of vanilla, honeyed tropical fruit. Medium bodied, big sweet caramel, soft acid, warming alcohol. Soft acid, warm and sweet, a bit of tartness, sweet caramel and apple. Gorgeous, lingering acid, soft apple. Incredibly well balanced and absolutely lovely.
