It is sticky sweet on the nose lacking an underlying freshness. The sweetness is very apparent on the palate, overpoweringly sticky sweet, blowsy fat with a lack of structure. Some fresher flavours do come through towards the back but not enough to give the much needed balance. Score: 86-89 Derek Smedley MW
 
Mid honeyed gold. Hint of veg but nothing desperately eloquent on the nose. Big and round and very sweet with lots of rather green acidity. Falls away a bit sharply. A bit tired. Score: 15.5 Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com
 
Thick and rich, with lots of dried pineapple and honey character. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with some spice and a long finish. Powerful. 91 -94 Score: 91-94 James Suckling, WineSpectator.com
 
This is another very primal, honeyed nose that is still a little yeasty but there appears to be good fruit concentration with honey, mango and apricot. The palate is displaying very good delineation and minerality, very vibrant and focused with a crisp, zest finish. Good level of botrytis towards the finish, very good length. Very fine. Drink 2012-2030. Tasted April 2008 Score: 91-93 Wine Advocate
