The 2010 Billet Doux (Semillon/Sauvignon) is bigger and richer than the 2009. The higher amount of Semillon in this vintage (90%) and the presence of 100% botrytised fruit are clearly felt. Burnt sugar, smoke, apricots and spices are woven together in this gorgeous, burnished sweet wine. (AG) (12/2011)

Full bright orange. Knockout nose melds notes of Grand Marnier, botanical herbs, lichee, golden raisin and a rancio element. Thick, silky and very sweet, with liqueur-like fruit, honey and herb flavors lifted by a note of rose petal and enlivened by the sauvignon blanc component. A bit warm and phenolic but has the concentration and complexity to support the 14.5% alcohol. I find this much more nuanced than the 2009 version, which was dominated by a dried apricot quality and featured a much lower percentage of nobly rotten berries. (ST) (5/2013)
