Reviews for 2011 Myrat Sauternes Blend

WS 95
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
Ripe and well-endowed with youthfully raw apricot peach and orange notes still knitting together liberally laced with almond cream and ginger. Powerful finish.-J.M.

Intense character of dried apricots pineapples and honey follow through to a full body very sweet and spicy. Oily texture. A cross between the outstanding 2001 and 2003.

Initially reduced nose clears with air to offer smoky apricot and peach aromas. On the palate this has the lighter frame of a Barsac but the peach apricot and papaya flavors are richer and sweeter than most of the wines from this subzone in 2011. Still de Myrat is successful this year thanks to the vintage's telltale acidity which provides adequate lift to the fruit flavors.

Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. Blessed with a refulgent golden color, the Château de Myrat 2011 has a more complex bouquet than its peers with clear honey, mandarin and light petrol notes, the delineation just lost a little in the haze of alcohol, yet still attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with pineapple and peach on the entry, well-judged acidity and a generous, viscous second half that demonstrates plenty of botrytized fruit in the vineyard. This is a bold Sauternes that goes out of its way to please. - Neal Martin

Already well balanced between botrytis and fresh fruits, this structured wine could develop quickly. The acidity, pineapple and apricot flavors are up front along with a dry structure with great potential. Drink from 2019.

Beautiful vibrant gold color. This shows lots of yellow stone fruits accented with vanilla bean and citrus rind and a spicy botrytis note. Vibrant and fresh with well-contoured fruit and good length. This is well developed and delineated with a rich creamy texture and acidity that carries the flavors through a long mineral-laden finish. Enjoy over the next 10-20 years.
