About

90

"The 1990 Jurancon-Vendange Tardive offers a Coutet/Climens-like, honeyed elegance in its rich, medium to full-bodied, elegant, moderately sweet flavors. There is crisp acidity, as well as a nice touch of oak, and the wine is refreshing despite its considerable power and flavor authority.

Considered by many to be the top estate of Jurancon, Domaine Cauhape's sweet wines can rival the best of Barsac/Sauternes. Prices dampen their appeal as bargains, but their rarity and quality make them a fascinating alternative to the more renowned sweet white wines of Bordeaux."
