Chateau Filhot 2005

91 points

Honey puffs with acid and lanolin. Baked pear and custard apple. These 2005 Sauternes are the most wonderfully approachable I’ve ever experienced and yet true Sauternes flavours. Drink now, oh I expect they will last a good while but they are in danger of losing freshness due to the soft acidity. A vintage to enjoy while waiting for others.
