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

(Barrel tasting) Lots of spices, lemon rind and honey follow through to a thick, full-bodied palate. Long finish. Dense and sweet.
I suspect most readers will find it hard to get excited about the 2002 vintage for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes after what appears to be a prodigious 2001. However, 2002 is a very fine year for this region, possibly superior to any of the vintages between 2000 and 1991. The wines possess plenty of botrytis, but neither the impressive definition nor the supreme elegance of the 2001s. This is a sweet, full-bodied, fat, concentrated, intense effort that was showing well in September 2003.
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.
Very clean aromas of caramel, vanilla and ripe pear. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with dried pineapple character and a light finish. Slightly hollow midpalate. Not as exciting as from barrel, but a pleasant wine. Best after 2006.
