Critic Notes

A dense yet very balanced Sauternes with dried pear and apple character, spice and fresh fruit. Medium sweet. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

Not quite up to the high standard of the 2014 release, yet this is still an enjoyable Sauternes. The Sauvignon Blanc is less evident than it usually is on this rich, sweet, exotic white, leaving it broader and more unctuous, with toasty oak adding an extra dimension. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2027

The 2015 Broustet felt a little muted on the nose when I tasted it from barrel sample. The palate is better with quite an unctuous opening, fat in the mouth with oodles of botrytis, thickly textured and generous on the long finish. Not a subtle Sauternes, but it should be delicious after bottling. Apr 2016, www.robertparker.com

Score: 89-91/100Neal Martin

Fresh and focused, with mirabelle plum, yellow apple and apricot notes leading to a light-bodied, heather-accented finish. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Score: 88-91/100Wine Spectator

Greenish tinge to the gold. Light floral nose without real attack or line. And very obvious alcohol. Unintegrated green notes. A bit aggressive and chunky at this early stage. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2037

We profile Decanter Man of the Year 2016 and Bordeaux legend Denis Dubourdieu… The first half of 2016 has been a tumultuous one for Denis Dubourdieu, bidding farewell to Paul Pontallier – friend and godfather to his son Jean-Jacques – as well as stoically battling with illness himself.
