Domaine Les Tailhades Muscat de Saint-Jean de Minervois 2014

Sweet Wine from France - Other
Review Date : 26-Jan-2017
Bright, light golden-yellow colour with some depth, paler on the rim. This has well-concentrated bouquet of musky tropical and savoury citrus fruits along with notes of raisins, wild honey and herbs. Sweet to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate features finely concentrated and intense flavours of musk, tropical fruits, raisins and wild honey, along with subtle nutty and herbal nuances. This has good presence and linearity, with some unctuousness balanced by a fine phenolic thread, background acidity and some alcoholic dive. The wine leads to a long, well-packed finish of musk, grapey flavours, raisins and honey. This is a well-concentrated, near unctuous Muscat Vin Doux Naturel with good presence and line. Match with fruit and baked desserts over the next 4+ years. 100% Muscat Petit Grain, hand-picked and cool-fermented to 15.0% alc. and approx. 125 g/L RS. A Vins Doux Naturel. (375 ml) 17.5/20 Jan 2017 RRP $13.95
