Chateau de Myrat Sauternes 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Beautiful honey, almonds, and apricot on the nose
Full bodied and richly textured on the palate
Long, rich finish that's almost creamy with honey, citrus creme, and tropical fruit
A beautiful young Sauternes! It's absolutely delicious but kind of a crime to be opened so young. Your crime will be forgiven, though, because it's understandable that you'd want to drain a bottle of this dessert nectar at the end of a nice dinner. It has a huge nose and a long, long finish that is richly layered. The retail price is $45, but you might also find half bottles for around $25. Raise a glass!
