Château Filhot 2009 – Sauternes, 2ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is beautifully fresh, fruity, elegant and offers richness as well as a racy minerality. It reveals notes of candied lemon, crystalized mandarine and small notes of kumquat associated with touches of exotic fruits, crushed green apple as well as very fine hints of lemon flowers, fresh ginger and a very discreet hint of vanilla (in the background). The palate is fruity, well-balanced, juicy, gourmand, precise and offers a beautiful juicy/acidulous frame, minerality, freshness, richness as well as fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of candied lemon, crystalized mandarine and small notes of pineapple in syrup associated with touches of crystalized green apple, very fine touches of lemon flowers, exotic fruits as well as fine hints of fresh quince, almond and very discreet hints of vanilla (in the background). Good length.
