Chateau de Malle-Sauternes-Grand Cru Classe-2007

Chateau de Malle
Grand Cru Classe


About 70% Semillon, 27% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Muscadelle. Barrel fermented and aged in about 50% new French oak.  Tasted 10/30/16: Appealing, soft, round mouthfeel. Classic Sauternes flavors of clover honey, baked pineapple, apricots and tea. Has a meaty, earthy, savory quality to it that makes it seem “less sweet” than you may expect.

"Very pure on the nose: touches of lemon curd, apricot-blossom and white peach with a crystalline clarity. The palate is very well-balanced with impressive levels of botrytis, displaying a pinch of spice on the entry. It has put on weight in recent months and developed a convincing caressing finish imbued with tension. This exceeds my previous expectations. Tasted January 2011." Neal Martin for The Wine Advocate
