2001 Nairac, Sauternes

SKU #1016656 95-98 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Intensely botrytised, with loads of allspice and mineral character, yet lively and exciting. Full-bodied, racy and very long. Fresh sweetness. (JS, Web-2002) Inner quote mark

89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Pale gold. Exotic aromas of ripe apricot and sultana raisin, with liqueur-like and candied notes. Very sweet, concentrated and powerful. Extremely young, chewy and dense, with sugar, acidity and alcohol balanced at a high level. Note of licorice. Shows excellent delineation and structure from the outset, as well as terrific length. Inner quote mark (8/2003)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Château Nairac 2001 has quite an intense bouquet with dried quince, nougat and hazelnut aromas, slightly more oxidative than its peers and yet still attractive. The palate is well balanced with spicy notes on the entry, well-judged acidity and a lovely marmalade-driven, harmonious finish. This is aging very well and should offer another 10 years of pleasure, possibly more. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2014)
