The de Malle 2009 remains aromatically subdued, yet the palate is adorned with crisp pear and nectarine tinged on the entry with racy acidity that brings such vivacity. Quite linear, but maintaining good freshness from start until its lemongrass-tinged finish, it will hopefully gain more complexity by the time of bottling, by which time it may merit a higher mark.

The 2009 de Malle has a gorgeous bouquet of clarified butter, yellow flowers and lemon curd that bursts from the glass – stylistically not a million miles away from Climens. The palate is very sweet and candied on the entry. It needs more bite and race and perhaps I would prefer less residual sugar towards the finish. But it remains balanced and offers a delicious, easy-drinking Sauternes that should age with style. Drink now-2030. eRobertParker.com.February, 2013

Attractive aromas and flavors of sliced apple, pear and honey. Medium-bodied and medium sweet, with a spicy botrytis and fruit finish

Deep gold. Sweet, candied violets on the nose. Fresh and precise on the front palate. Masses of weight and sweetness. Still a baby but it promises well. A rather burnt element to it, in an interesting way. Savoury, dry finish. Serious stuff that should repay a considerable wait. Long.

Less marked by the 2009 'rôti' of the best ones ('rôti' meaning the sensation of ultra-botrytised berries), on the reductive side, with a small amount of bitterness, interesting fruit but on the basis of this sample, not complete wine
