His 2009 has a well defined nose with apple-blossom, lime leaf, apricot and orange peel. Opens nicely the longer it remains in the glass. The palate is well balanced, very good weight on the entry with a citric thread of acidity interwoven through the pure honeyed fruit with a hint of ginger on the aftertaste. Nothing extravagant here, but supremely well crafted and succinct.-Neal Martin

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

Pale, full yellow. Racy aromas of pear, apple, peach and marzipan, with enticing floral lift and a hint of botrytis in the background.

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
