Description

1 bottle in very good condition. Kept in dark cool cellar since purchase.

This is a sweet wine from a combination of noble rote and late harvest grapes with very low yields, showing great concentration and zesty acidity. These are some of the longer ageing wines in the world.

"A shimmering, deep, yellow-gold colour when poured, a vibrant hue which suggests this wine has much in store. Indeed it does; although the nose starts off dominated by a high-toned volatility which swamps all other aromas, there soon emerges notes of botrytis with apples and pears following behind, a charming, scented array which is less exuberant than I remember, but no less fine. The palate has a pure and well defined character, which builds in intensity through the midpalate as does the texture, starting off light-footed and elegantly delineated which fits with my mental picture of the wine from when I last tasted it, in 2002, but soon opening out to reveal a more plush, opulent and dense consistency. There are fleeting nuances of caramel, but it retains a freshness like the bite of a crisp apple which gives it a lot of appeal. Overall, this is a very complete, beautifully composed wine which has proved itself yet again to be fabulous drinking and also great value for money. This was my last bottle I am afraid, but I suppose that is all the more reason to visit Domaine Cady next time I am in the Loire."
Score 17/20. Chris Kissack.
