Average critic rating : 90.5 points



Tasted single blind against its peers. The de Malle 2008 has an uncomplicated bouquet that offers honey, tangerine and quince aromas. The palate is medium-bodied and more alcoholic that previous encounters. However, there is certainly good weight and a harmonious finish with custard creams and a spicy note that emerges in the glass with aeration. This is a fine Sauternes. Tasted January 2012. Wine Advocate.February, 2012



There is such a pretty nose on this Sauternes, with yellow flowers, dried honey and a touch of jasmine, all with fine delineation and lift. The palate is very well-balanced, with racy acidity rendering this de Malle as fresh as a daisy. Very focused towards the finish, with subtle notes of lemon curd and apricot, it expands beautifully across the mouth. This delightful de Malle will age beautifully in bottle. Drink now-2030. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011
