Chateau Filhot 2007

91 points

Sauternes. 13.5%

I wouldn’t normally drink Sauternes so young (although it can be charming when the initial fruit is so forward in the first few years) but this was so cheap.

Lovely fresh with excellent sweetness, uncluttered by oak. This will turn into a fine beeswaxy Sauternes with purity and complexity. Today it is quite simple but lovely still. It drank well over a week.
