WINERY PROFILE | Domaine Ernest Burn / Clos St Imer

“Golden yellow with amber highlights. Very intense dried apricot and canned peach aromas are intensified by spicy botrytis. Creamy on entry, then sweet and suave in the middle, showing precise flavors of orange oil, poached pear, cinnamon apple pie and vanilla bean. Looks, smells and tastes like a sweet wine (it does have 60 g/l residual sugar) but the almost mind-numbing acidity here keeps this wine vibrant on the suave, rich, very long finish, which tastes drier than I would have expected from the numbers. About 50% of the grapes were hit by noble rot at the time of harvest.”
