Sauternes, Premier Grand Cru Classé Supérieur

VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is fruity, el­e­gant and offers a slight rich­ness. It re­veals notes of pear, ripe red ap­ple and slight hints of mirabelle, quince, apri­cot as­so­ci­ated with dis­creet hints of citrus, honey as well as slight hints of flow­ers. The palate is fruity, fine, sleek, well-balanced and offers a beau­ti­ful min­er­al­ity, a slight rich­ness, fat as well as fleshy. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of com­poted pear, ap­ple com­pote and can­died lemon as­so­ci­ated with slight hints of zests, apri­cot as well as a very dis­creet hint of vanilla in the back­ground. Good length. A style more «stewed/com­poted» than on milles­imes 2014 and 2015, but al­ways well-balanced. Beau­ti­ful and suave per­sis­tence with slight touches of dried apri­cot.

Score : 19.5
