Character: Markus Del Monego MW, best sommelier of the world 1998: "Golden colour. Opulent flavour of honey, white lilies, wisteria, acacia honey, quinces, dried orange peel, candied pineapple. On the palate well structured with medium weight and excellent length, crisp acidity, perfectly balancing the opulent sugar." / Andreas Larsson, best sommelier of the world 2007: "Rather deep golden colour. Wonderful nose, very intense and full of character, honey, cloudberries, yellow fruit, chestnut and white truffle, very nuanced and complex. Lovely palate, intense and lingering with a beautiful sweetness, invigorating freshness, lovely fruit and a serious structure with plenty of extract, very long and lingering."
