Sauternes (2nd Growth)

The first samples back in January were excellent, vibrant, toned with that Filhot rainwater
kind of minerality, on the sweet side but also with good acidity to balance. Then, for the trade
tastings, there was a series of very unfinished samples, and now we are just back to where we
were at the beginning: a precise, clearly defined, very mineral style, with its 1/3 Sauvignon
brightening it all up even more and a long soft finish. BILL BLATCH, Bordeaux Gold

Gold with a hint of copper. Not especially distinguished on the nose. Nervy. Unctuous texture with mid to high sweetness and lots of acidity. Quite muscular and exciting. Not classic big and sweet but certainly sweeter than most and a very valid style. Some real chew and structure but a bit heavy overall. RS 145 g/l, TA 3.5 g/l. JANCIS ROBINSON
