Although recent vintages of Filhot have been disappointing, I am more optimistic about the 2011. There is an attractive nutty note on the bouquet that is crisp and defined. The palate is nicely balanced with fresh, honeyed fruit while the viscous finish lacquers the mouth with the chutzpah that has been absent of late. I hope that this Sauternes remains on course throughout its barrel maturation because Filhot needs to be up there with the greats. Drink 2014-2020. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2012

This is really intense with dried apricot and lots of botrytis spices from nutmeg to white pepper. Full body, very sweet and a rich finish. Best Filnot in years. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

Quite spicy, with a Muscat-like edge to the orange zest, nectarine, tangerine and peach flavors. Features lots of toasted almond on the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

RS 140-145 g/l. Mid gold. Complex, characterful nose, oaky spice, grapefruit and a lightly reductive/smoky edge. Limey and a hint of bacon fat. Mouthfilling fruit and savoury oak on the palate, note of linseed. Even with all that power, there's freshness too. Great length. Hardly subtle or elegant now but packs so much flavour and richness and a moreish bitter-orange aftertaste. Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com

A denser, richer Filhot this year filled with wonderful concentration. Cr?me caramel and dried apricot. Sufficient acidity to carry the richness and very long finish. A great value Sauternes making tremendous improvement of late. Drink 2021-2047. Decanter.com
