69% Semillon, 28% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Muscadelle. 30% new french oak, and aged for 20-24 months in barrel. Loads of citrus, creme brulee, vanilla and toast. This is sweet but balanced with great acid, spicy botrytis and a delicate focused finish. Geoffrey Binder. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau de Malle 375ml
Attractive aromas and flavors of sliced apple, pear and honey. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a spicy botrytis and fruit finish Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Chateau de Malle 375ml
Shows fresh pineapple on the nose, with hints of melon. Medium- to full-bodied and medium sweet, with a spicy, honey finish. Score range: 89-91 -JS Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Chateau de Malle 375ml
Green apple, toffee and lemon tart aromas open to a full body. Very sweet, with caramel, cooked apple and light vanilla flavors. Long and flavorful. Dense and sweet. Best after 2009.
(Barrel tasting) Lots of spices, lemon rind and honey follow through to a thick, full-bodied palate. Long finish. Dense and sweet.
Full yellow. Aromas of peach, flowers and marzipan. Dense on entry, then sweet and concentrated in the middle, with a slightly aggressive note of reduction showing today. In an awkward stage, but this boasts strong sappy, spicy material. Like a couple of these '05s, this seems youthfully musclebound in the early going.
(Barrel tasting) Lemon aromas of surprising intensity allow this wine to stand out from the crowd. But they also give it a dry, firm feel with acidity more dominant than sweetness.
