Chateau Filhot 2004

Chateau Filhot – Second Growth Sauternes

Bill Blatch: Here we have a good straightforward 2nd growth, with good concentration and those beguiling mineral tones that Filhot always delivers, never obscured by oak – for the simple reason that de Vaucelles doesn’t possess much oak and never did. It really does the job as a good working Sauternes, in the lighter style, and excellent as an all-round food accompaniment.

£213.71 / case halves

Wine Spectator – Score 82/100: Aromas of lemon rind and licorice.

Jancis Robinson – Score 15.5/20: Clear copper. Very light sugary nose.
