This producer always seems to be right on top of things. Great quality, and you can't beat the price.

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

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.

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.

(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.

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.
