Had it as a tasting at the local wine shop.

Very nice. It was a medium gold color. The nose was very strong with nice levels of botrytis but not choking levels. Nose of lemon and honey but it was a clean smell.

Very balanced, the flavor was full on the tonge but melts away with a nice acidity. Finish is LONG.

I've has many 2001's (Guiraud, Myrat, Climen, Bel Air, Haut Bergeron, etc,...), but this one is one of the nicest.
