Really ripe and fleshy offering delicious glazed peach apricot and honey notes with lots of orange blossom and fig and a very rich finish. Starting to take shape now too. Impressive. -J.M.

The Chateau Coutet 2010 was a beauty from barrel with its payload of 154gms of residual sugar and sure enough, after a year in bottle it is one of the most compelling sweet wines in the vintage. It shows immense clarity on the nose, with the oak still a little prominent at the moment, but it will integrate with bottle age. The palate is well-balanced with a fine line of acidity. There is an engaging sense of tension here, real drive and mineralite towards the finish, like a cousin of Doisy-Daene but with a little more bravura. There is a sense of purpose about this 2010 Sauternes, with a persistent finish that keeps you coming back for more. Bravo! Drink now-2030+. - NEAL MARTIN

Planted to clay on limestone subsoil. A deep tightly packed nose boasts loads of exotic fruit coconut and spicy botrytis backed with candied lemon peel. The entry is very creamy and juicy underscored by bright citrus tones toasted almond orange marmalade and yellow stone fruit. Acids lift the entire wine keeping it elegant and fresh and carrying through a long delectable finish. This will age effortlessly. Enjoy through 2040.
