This lively Sauternes has good acidity which gives it great freshness and balance. At 108 grams per liter of sugar (about 10% less the "average" Sauternes) it will make a versatile food wine.

"This just has to go down as one of the great successes of the vintage. Just to check, I tasted it blind against the Second Growths and its superiority shone out; then against other Firsts, and its combination of lush concentration and an elegant 'lift' put it right there at the top. At a quite moderate 136 g/l of residual, and an alcohol and acidity that are almost identical to the '07, this is the kind of 'nervous' balance that many larger estates would maybe have preferred to achieve this year. In that, it is one of the few wines to resemble the '01, and is maybe even superior."

"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."

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.

"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)

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."

"This is a positive, strong-flavoured wine, with loads of chunky fatness coming out of the S?millon and with the botrytis strongly apparent in the form of quite heavy glycerine. At 138 g/l residual, it is on a par with many others, but it has not been fermented out beyond 13?8, procuring a very fine honeyed texture and avoiding excess of power, so the result is gentle for such a flavourful wine. In addition, there is a good acid balance that stitches it all up nicely. As at Fargues, this will be kept in barrel longer than others, so will certainly soften a little more during its ?levage. Quite clearly this ch'teau kept right on top of the botrytis."

"Unlike many, the assemblage was made back in January, so the wine is maybe more relaxed at this stage than those samples made up from the different lots, still apart in the cellar. This is also the first year of the new estate manager Vincent Laberg?re, taking the place of Patrick Eymery who retires in June, and he seemed keen to make a statement with this his first vintage. Rayne Vigneau has tended towards a lighter style recently, and this 2009 is a resolute return to something richer, with a more concentrated mouth-feel and 160 g/l of residual. But it is also bursting with fresh fruit aromas, from the higher than usual proportion of Sauvignon (28%) and from the absolute purity of the early October botrytis. The result is a densely sweet but highly 'tensile? and absolutely pure Rayne Vigneau."

"Rieussec flourishes in highly concentrated vintages, and 2009 is no exception. With 150 pickers working two 8-hour shifts, they managed to keep up to date with the year's rapid botrytis, and so maintained a total purity, elegance and complexity of flavour, and at 4,0 g/l, a high tone of acidity. At the same time, at 160 g/l residual, the wine is as usual unashamedly rich. The result is that honeyed sort of purity in the concentration that we saw something of in the historic '89 and '01, possibly superior to the former and almost up to the latter. The balance seems so natural and gives the impression of being able to age for a century or more."
