2018 Château Filhot  (Sauternes) 92

Medium-bodied with sweet, candied apricots, orange, pineapple and lemon meringue pie with a hint of mint leaf on the nose and on the honeyed, sweet, fruit and spice filled palate. Forward, fresh and with honeyed orange cream with a touch of all spice in the finish, this is good to go. 92 Points

2017 Château Filhot  (Sauternes) 92

On the orange fruit side of the style range, with plenty of mangoes, overripe apricot, candied orange rind, vanilla, and creme brulee, the wine is correctly situated on the corner of decadently sweet, and fresh with acidity, finishing with honeyed tangerines, vanilla bean and roasted pineapples in the endnote. 92 Points

2011 Château Filhot  (Sauternes) 89

Light, bright and not too tight, this early drinking, sweet, white, Bordeaux wine offers a bright, sweet, crisp profile of honeyed pineapples, apricot, vanilla and sweet, candied, oranges. This is a good sweet wine to serve as an aperitif, or as a meal accompaniment, due to its fresh, acidic profile, and lack of density. 89 Points

2007 Château Filhot  (Sauternes) 87

Medium bodied, with an orange, apricot, pineapple and honeysuckle personality is a light, easy style of Sauternes that will be best enjoyed in its youth. 87 Points

2001 Château Filhot  (Sauternes) 89

A lighter style of Sauternes that reminds me more of a Barsac, with its lack of depth and color. Lots of fresh pineapple, orange, lemon, honey, vanilla and floral notes. Medium bodied and fully mature, this is a nice, sweet wine, but it's missing the concentration of the vintage. I'd drink this over the next 5 years, before it fades. 89 Points
