2010 de Myrat, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)
Hugely aromatic, a wine that manages to combine freshness, lightness and density. It is deliciously fresh, then offering a fine, ripe dried fruit aftertaste.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The sample tasted blind during my main Sauternes tasting was a little out of sorts; however, a second and third encounter were much more promising. The nose is very pure, with honey, passion fruit and quince, whilst the palate demonstrates great freshness and vitality, zippy acidity, with real race towards the linear finish. This holds great promise for the future.
A lush tropical, overtly buttery style, with notes of creamed mango, papaya and guava leading to lots of ginger cream, meringue and dacquoise on the finish. Very showy, but offers gorgeous mouthfeel and length. Best from 2015 through 2028.
A classical styled Sauternes with a delicate nose of lemon curd and sweet spices. A classical styled Sauternes with a delicate nose of lemon curd and sweet spices.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Pale, bright golden yellow. Intense peach, chamomile, tea and gin aromas are complicated by a touch of honeyed botrytis. Shows flavors similar to the aromas, with a richer than usual texture, good intensity, and a clean, persistent finish that shows a hint of youthfully chewy tannins. One of the more promising Myrats of recent years.
