    Chateau Gilette 1967
    Creme de Tete, Sauternes
    1bn, 3sdc, 3lbsl, 4lscl youthful medium gold color
    Bottle (7)

    "This fabulously rich wine has an awesomely intense bouquet of caramel and buttery hazelnuts, combined with intense aromas of honeyed fruit such as pineapples, oranges, and apricots. Decadently rich, with an unctuous, chewy texture, yet with enough acidity to provide great delineation and balance, this is a magnificent wine that has miraculously retained an amazing freshness for its 23 years of age. It should continue to evolve and improve for another 30, perhaps even 40, years. This is an outrageous thrill-a-sip Sauternes!" (96 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 3rd Ed. , Jan. 1998)
