A silky, feminine Sauternes, the 2014 Filhot is all about understatement. Jasmine, chamomile, green apple, candied lemon and mint are some of the notes that are laced into the soft, subtle perfumed finish. This is a pretty, polished Sauternes that will drink well pretty much upon release.

The Château Filhot 2014 is a blend of 60% Sémillon, 36% Sauvignon Bland and 4% Muscadelle, with 135 grams per liter residual sugar. It had to follow some mighty fine Sauternes and Barsacs in my tasting and regrettably its deficiencies on the nose were all too obvious: a lack of fruit and intensity, a little “wishy-washy” for want of a better word. The palate is slightly better. The entry is a little shrill with plenty of citric fruit, but is lacks harmony and viscosity, lacks a sense of conviction. I am convinced that there is simply too much reliance on Sauvignon Blanc when Sémillon would serve it better. As such, the Filhot comeback will have to wait. eRobertParker.com.April, 2015

Fresh and bright, with good detail to the hazelnut, heather, pineapple and quince flavors. Features an exotic hint and rippling acidity through the finish.—J.M. Wine Spectator, April 2015.
