Full-bodied and sweet with lots of sliced citrus fruit and spicy bitter almond and honey on the finish. Powerful. -JS

Racy aromas of pear apple peach and marzipan with enticing floral lift and a hint of botrytis in the background. Suave and fine-grained this Barsac displays very intense and sweet flavors of apple jelly ripe pear and pineapple yet remains wonderfully light on its feet for such an opulent wine. Subtle restrained and impeccably balanced wine offering sneaky concentration and very good finishing grip. A pretty note of apple cider lingers long. This is yet another great Nairac in the making; the wines from this estate have been magnificent in recent years and it's hard to think of a better sweet wine for the money. If you must buy just a single Sauternes in '09 this might be the one.-Ian D'Agata

Nicolas Tari oversaw a sensational 2009 Chateau Nairac. It has a richer bouquet compared to the 2010 with exuberant, explosive scents of acacia honey, dried apricot and a hint of petrol that transposes the exoticism of the vintage. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening. There is plenty of vibrant spicy fruit, interwoven with orange rind and pineapple, leading to a beautifully focused an intense finish. Stack this high in your cellar. Drink 2016-2040+. Tasted March 2014. - NEAL MARTIN
