Michael Jackson

Nose
Coconut ice.
Palate
Sherbet. Lemonade. Becoming. Honeyish.
Finish
Rose's lime marmalade, on well-done buttered toast.
Comment
Which Sauternes? The flavours of childhood, rather than sophistication.

Dave Broom

Nose
Sweet and malty: hay, fruit salad, ripe pear, pineapple, quince, lemon, barley sugar, candy floss. Gets drier, and woodier, with time.
Palate
Silky and soft with fair balance. The sweetness goes quickly, leaving crisp malt and light spices.
Finish
Bitter orange nut.
Comment
The wood has a fair say in things, the Sauternes playing a subtle role in it all.
