Château Filhot Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2011
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...Add winemaker's notes

The Château FILHOT was fonded in 1709 by Romain de FILHOT and is now owned and managed by one of his descendants: count Henri de Vaucelles. The estate covers an area of 350 hectares with 62 hectares of vineyard all along the south of the Sauternes village in the Sauternes appellation.

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
Classic Sauternes qualities - tried it with Fois Gras and it went down a treat!!

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
A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Filhot Sauternes 375ml
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.
[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.
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.
