Château Filhot Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1990

Member Review by Nicki:

Tasted May 2008: Known for being one of the best Filhots of the last decades, this is indeed a very good wine. Lovely deep yellow colour with a touch of gold, yet not as deep as other 1990 Sauternes. In the bouquet and the taste, the major characteristics are elegance, balance and great purity. Moderately sweet, with excellent counterbalancing acidity, rather light but intensily flavoured. A true-to-type Filhot, delicious to drink by itself. Will keep for another decade.
