2010 Chateau de Veyres

Chateau de Veyres – Sauternes

RELEASED 9th May 2010 – £137/case bottles or £153/case half bottles

Bill Blatch: A recent re-entry on the scene (renovation started in 1995), this estate has been going from strength to strength, in the more brazen, boldly spicey mold of, for example, de Myrat. The colour is quite dark, the sweetness very apparent and the flavours good and strong, but the high acidity keeps it all in shape and will provide great tone to this full-styled wine, for quite early drinking.
Jancis Robinson: 16/20 – Drink 2015-2024. Smoky nose, very sweet palate may be a little simpler and stickier than some but could be quite a bargain.
Neal Martin: 89-91/100The 2010 Chateau de Veyres is precise on the nose, evoking notes of grapefruit, pineapple and lemon curd. I suspect this will develop more intensity by the time of bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry, good weight and acidity with fresh almond, quince and cooking apple towards the pert, lively finish.
