Chateau de Malle 1999

Chateau de Malle – Second Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: We never hear too much about de Malle: a quite small 2nd growth that only occasionally (1990 – 2007) puts it right up there amongst the best of the First Growths. Yet I always find its style totally intriguing: full but not clumsy, often on the lighter side but never unconcentrated, and always with that clotted cream kind of quality to the texture and flavour that make it really interesting. This ’99 has all of that, in a slightly fuller style than usual.
