"Denis Dubourdieu considers this vintage to be the finest produced by him, his father and his grandfather! He is a great proponent of the preservation of fine fresh botrytis fruit flavour and usually eschews any excess sweetness that he considers may smother it.

This year, however, he has found a much sweeter balance, at 155 g/l residual, but this in no way compromises the freshness of the spring flower aromas and white peach fruitiness (there is little of the usual dried apricots this year) and it is all balanced by a quite high acidity (4.5 g/l). The result is an unusually sweet but very complete and complex wine that will certainly age for ever.

Denis has also managed to produce 7 barrels of 'Extravagant', a 50-50 Sauvignon - Semillon blend this year, with 12? of alcohol and 320 g/l residual. It is a very fat style of wine, more on its power than the slightly more fruit-driven '07."
