Description

After tasting 50+ red Bordeaux over the last two days, what kept me going was the thought of tasting this Chateau Filhot. An under-rated estate that many believe should be Premier Cru, dates back to the mid 1600's and is a 2nd Growth. Having said all that, the mere fact that Filhot is a 2nd Growth is a serious positive for us, offering incredible value for money. A blend of mostly Semillon (80%) and Sauvignon Blanc (20%), a wine with depth, poise and balance that’s not too sweet. Delicious drinking.

Smells

heady aromas of beeswax, honeysuckle, dried mango and pineapple, banana lollies, hints of model airplane glue (a classic descriptive of Sauternes), toast and vanilla.

Tastes

a luscious palate but not overtly sweet, the balance and poise are impressive, where the botrytis is perfectly in balance, giving apricot flavours, honey and beeswax but where the fine crystalline acid vein freshens and extends the palate. Superb drinking now as its hard to resist but will age for 10years+. Serve with Foie gras or a ripe, cheese selection.
