The nose of the 2009 Lamothe-Guignard is very tight at the moment, unfurling slowly with honey, acacia, almond and fresh apricot. The palate has a viscous entry, with what appears to be more residual sugar than other 2009s. It is unctuous towards the honey and peach-driven finish. Very generous at this nascent stage, but the length suggests a potentially great wine after bottling

The Lamothe-Guignard 2009 is noticeably deep in color, appearing remarkably mature for a 2009 with its deep, honeyed glaze. The bouquet is more Semillon dominated than Sauvignon Blanc, offering tightly wound scents of beeswax, barley sugar, dried honey and a faint chlorophyll note (a trait that I usually associate with mature Sauternes.) The palate is very well- balanced with a viscous, very honeyed and pure entry. It does not possess the complexity one might demand from a 2009, although it is clean and fresh towards the botrytis-rich finish. Drink now-2030. eRobertParker.com.February, 2013

Thick and very sweet, with lots of honey notes and an almost syrupy structure. Spicy botrytis on the finish. A little loosely knit, but interesting

Not much nose. Then great weight and sweetness but a bit formless. It has less freshness than many. Just big and beefy. Very round and a bit hot. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Pure apricot aromas so frequent in this vintage and indicating great botrytised berries, with even a beginning of caramel-like elements from what Germans call trockenbeerenauslesen berries, refined, complete in its category and certainly great value for money
