Château de Myrat Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2011

Member Review by sthom:

A big bore. With so many quality Sauternes out there, there is no point in drinking this. It is unbalanced, lacking in finesse or interest, completely inelegant. Who cares if there's "notes of apple, pear and honey", etc. when the production taken as a whole is pointless? I agree completely with Steve Tanzer's review when he says, "... a bit undifferentiated, with modest energy ... could use more cut and shape. Seems a bit disjointed today and lacking in finesse." He charitably gave it an 87; I give it 2 stars or a 75.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

The aromas are immense, dried apricots, sweet jelly and honey. The palate shows considerable power, richness, a wine that is packed with intense, biting botrytis, very spicy. Wine Enthusiast. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Myrat 375ml

Dried apricot and citrus fruit aromas follow through to a full body, with a very sweet and intense palate. Finishes with lots of fruit and spicy nutmeg character. -J.S. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Myrat 750ml
