By far the BEST dessert wine I had come across! With a rich golden sheen, honey notes, and the level of sweetness that is heartwarming, but not too much. Could easily clear 3 bottles had it not been that I was 35000 feet above ground and did not want to get too drunk on the plane...

Tasting Note: 2009 Vintage - Mature gold colour, very spicy, interesting more mature wine with bags of character. Elegant and classy, perfect with the foie gras! Available to purchase in the UK from Oddbins - from £14.39 multiple purchase or £17.99 individual bottle.

An excellent substitute in place of a Spanish Port following any meal. Although it is considered a 'Desert' Wine, it's a good compliment to any richly flavored meal paired with Fish, Lamb, or Fowl... ---GBJ

Fresh, with lots of floral, honey and orange peel notes followed by heather and marzipan and a bright, juicy finish. There's nice freshness in the works, with a very lively, spicy finish. -J.M. Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Filhot Sauternes 750ml

[Barrel tasting] Gorgeous aromas of dried pineapple and apricot follow through to a full-bodied palate, with sweet fruit and a long, long finish. Best ever from here?

The 1986 is the best Filhot in my memory. The light golden color is followed by a wine with a floral, pineapple, and tropical fruit-scented bouquet, medium body, as well as lovely, elegant, and brilliantly pure, botrytised, lively flavors. Just medium sweet, this wine could be served as an aperitif wine. Anticipated maturity: Nowndash;1998.

Medium yellow. Fruit-driven aromas of peach, orange and candied pineapple. Juicy, spicy and firm-edged, with the pineapple flavor buttressed by lively acidity. The lingering sweetness shows good grip and focus. A good early showing for this wine.

Pineapple skin, apple and honey on the nose. Full-bodied, very sweet and very lively, with intense acidity and a spicy aftertaste. The best in a while from this estate. Best after 2009.
