2001 Sauternes 2e Cru Classe

Chateau de Myrat focuses on balance to create delicate, elegant, and distinguished Sauternes vintages. The 2001 Chateau de Myrat is a perfect example.

The 88% Semillon, 8% Sauvignon Blanc, and 4% Muscadelle reveals mineral flint notes moving into candied citrus, orange zest, and exotic fruits. The palate offers lovely intensity and some fullness, with blended wood tannins leading to a fruity finish. The 2001 Chateau de Myrat maintains harmony between sugar, alcohol, and sharpness for superb balance.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at the de Myrat vertical at the property. The 2001 Château de Myrat put in a good performance a couple of years ago. Here, it has that attractive quince and dried honey aromas, a touch of almond paste and cinnamon developing in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, miles fresher than previous vintages with a tangy quince and marmalade finish that just does not quite deliver the length. It is not quite as good as the previous bottle, but it was clearly the best de Myrat since the estate was reborn in the late 1980s. This is worth seeking out if you see it on the market or in a restaurant. Tasted April 2016.
