    2012 Sauternes 2e Cru Classe, Bordeaux.

    The 2012 Sauternes Chateau de Myrat was produced from a family property, a vineyard of 22 hectares planted on the beautiful stony terroir in Haut-Barsac. This vintage from Chateau de Myrat is 88% Sémillon, 8% Sauvignon and 4% Muscadelle.

    This Sauternes 2e Cru Classe is a smooth, spicy and expressive wine on ginger, saffron, apricot, mango, orange and orange peels notes. A harmonious concentration is developed on the palate with good unctuousness as well as an airy and frank finish. The 2012 Chateau de Myrat reveals a particularly successful balance for a delicate vintage; it is the result of a precise and skilfully led harvest.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted at the de Myrat vertical at the property. The 2012 Château de Myrat has a simple, rather waxy bouquet with acacia and dried pineapple scents that just feel constrained by the vintage. The palate is crisp and candied on the entry, something almost confection-like about this de Myrat. It is not complex, but it is clean and nicely balanced, a pretty Sauternes to drink over the next 6-8 years--one to enjoy in its flush of youth instead of stashing away. Tasted April 2016.
