2015 Sauternes, Deuxieme Cru Classé from the Bordeaux wine region.
Chateau de Myrat is a family property, proprietor of a 22 hectares vineyard planted on the magnificent stony terroir of Haut-Barsac. The property is located on the Sauternes appellation, Grand Cru Classé in 1855. This 2015 Myrat is 88% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc and 4% Muscadelle.
This Deuxieme Cru Classé gives off quinces, citrus peels, peach and candied apricot aromas. This Sauternes ample and full-bodied palate reveals fresh fruit hints and lingers on spices and a fine woody notes. The 2015 Chateau de Myrat is very elegant.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Myrat was tasted as a blend and from barrel at the estate with proprietor Xavier de Pontac. It has an elegant bouquet with scents of white flowers infusing the lightly honeyed fruit. The palate is very well balanced, very pure and refined, gently building to a really quite gorgeous, tensile finish that feels long and very sophisticated. This is one of the best that I have tasted from Château de Myrat and comes highly recommended.
