Lot of 6 Bottles - Standard - 750mlStarting bid HK$4,080.00
Golden-colored, with extreme aromas of honey, candied lemons and mandarin oranges. Full-bodied, very sweet and concentrated. It goes on and on. Thick and rich. Loads of spicy, almost hot botrytis character. Best after 2010. 3,330 cases made.
The de Malle 2001 has a soft apricot and marmalade scented bouquet with just a touch of burnt toffee. The palate is ripe on the entry with a hint of spice. It is quite compact but with good weight in the mouth, though it cuts away abruptly on the marmalade-tinged finish and consequently I have to shave a couple of points off my score.
