2009 Château de Fargues - Sauternes (375ml)
2009 Château de Fargues - Sauternes (375ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Sauternes
White Wine 

"How absolutely refreshing the more acid nature of Fargues is in a vintage of such richness! It acts as a veritable flavour enhancer, bringing out the strongly mineral character of the terroir and the forceful tea and cinnamon flavours of the botrytis, still noticeable even after 6 months of ?levage. This is a broadly constituted, strong flavoured, quite forceful Sauternes (Maybe it wasn't by chance that Comte Alexandre served the almost equally strong ?83 for lunch after our last tasting). It has clearly been built for the long haul, not only for the extra year of ?levage in barrel that they do here, but also for really long-term cellaring in bottle."

2009 Château de Myrat - Barsac (375ml)
2009 Château de Myrat - Barsac (375ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Sauternes - Barsac
White Wine 

"Here is another very rich and strong wine. It checks in at 14?0 alcohol and 150 g/l residual, and is full of ripe, quite roasted flavours. Yet it has tremendous freshness, partly from the quite high acidity and also from the 'lift' that it's chalky Barsac subsoil certainly provides. So, in the mouth, as well as being very rich, it is also very fresh."

2009 Château Doisy-Daëne - Barsac (375)
2009 Château Doisy-Daëne - Barsac (375ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Sauternes - Barsac
White Wine 

"Denis Dubourdieu considers this vintage to be the finest produced by him, his father and his grandfather! He is a great proponent of the preservation of fine fresh botrytis fruit flavour and usually eschews any excess sweetness that he considers may smother it.

This year, however, he has found a much sweeter balance, at 155 g/l residual, but this in no way compromises the freshness of the spring flower aromas and white peach fruitiness (there is little of the usual dried apricots this year) and it is all balanced by a quite high acidity (4.5 g/l). The result is an unusually sweet but very complete and complex wine that will certainly age for ever.

Denis has also managed to produce 7 barrels of 'Extravagant', a 50-50 Sauvignon - Semillon blend this year, with 12? of alcohol and 320 g/l residual. It is a very fat style of wine, more on its power than the slightly more fruit-driven '07."

Wow! We've been carrying this super cuvee from Denis Dubourdieu's Doisy Daene property for many years and this is definitely one of the best. Denis actually told us at our tasting that he feels it is indeed his best ever. Super sweet and rich, but with enough acidity to offer balance and freshness. Lots of candied tropical fruit flavors. An amazing effort that seems to linger in your mouth for minutes.

2009 Château Guiraud - Sauternes (375ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Sauternes
White Wine 

"As always, this is dominated by a freshness of flavour, this time kiwi-like fruit as well as the traditional mandarin orange peel - Xavier Planty calls it ?rhubarb?. The 35% Sauvignon, still apart in several lots in the cellar, is mainly responsible for this, but the S?millons are very aromatic too. The base is however powerful, although, at 135 g/l residual, they resisted the temptation of going for broke on sweetness, no mean feat for such a large estate con-fronted by such a sudden onrush of botrytis. The overall effect is of evenness and of a reserved kind of tightness, surrounded by but not dominated by all that freshness of pure fruit."

This "First Growth" Sauternes is owned by our friend Xavier Planty who has been at Guiraud nearly 30 years and just recently became owner after being winemaker and Director. This 2010 is another great Guiraud, fat and rich and quite sweet. Has the classic spiciness of Guiraud. Despite the high level of sweetness, it's fairly light on its feet. -- CW Wine Staff (April 2011)

2009 Château Haut Mayne - Cuvée Mayne du Cros Graves (375ml)
Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Bordeaux - Graves
Red Wine 

Supple and smooth, this is a distinctly pretty Graves rouge, with ripe Cabernet and Merlot fruit gracefully layered over soft tannins. The voluptuous style of the 2009 vintage really plays to its strengths, and combines nicely with the château's excellent Graves terroir. The owner is Michel Boyer, whose daughter Catherine d'Halluin also makes outstanding wine at Château Clos Bourbon in the Premières Côtes de Bordeaux.

Varietal: Bordeaux Blend | Location: France - Sauternes
White Wine 

"The balance here is identical to Raymond Lafon: 13?8 alcohol, 140 g/l residual and 3.9 g/l total acidity, but what a difference in style. There is a menthol kind of freshness pervading the wine, giving it an almost New World, or even Alsatian touch. This higher tone of fresh fruit will presumably get penetrated by the more roasted S?millon lots during the ?levage. For the second time (07 and 09 - no '08 was made), the sweetness is less absolute, La Tour Blanche having held the record for residual in '03 and '05, and has settled down into a finer balance as a result."

The nose is not really closed but is still holding back a lot: all the aromas are most definitely there, but they are hiding a little in the shadows. On the plate, it is obviously the wine's power which comes to the fore; the tannic structure is dense, tight-knit and firm, without being hard. A few more years of cellaring are required before beginning to drink this superb wine, whose balance guarantees a harmonious development in bottle.
