2017 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 93

I really like tasting, and frankly drinking young Sauternes. The play between all the ripe, and overripe tropical fruits, candied orange rind, lemon meringue, vanilla, and honey, paired with the right amount of edgy acidity makes this so easy to enjoy now, and if you prefer more secondary notes, for at least the next 20 years as well. 93 Points

2016 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 91

Medium-bodied, with a lean to the candied orange and lemon curd side of the style range, you also find, ripe, sweet, honeyed pineapple, mango and vanilla notes. This will be nice to enjoy on the younger side, pairing it with spicy, savory dishes. 91 Points

2013 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 91

Sweet, fresh, overripe tropical fruits, apricots, vanilla, flowers and honey get you going and ready for the next step, the luscious, fresh, honeyed pineapples on the palate and in the medium bodied finish. I really like these young Sauternes on a hot summer night, it's such a nice pairing. 91 Points

2011 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 92

With the right balance between the sweet, juicy pineapple soaked in honey and topped with vanilla, and acidity, the wine is fun to drink now, if you like them young, and it will also age quite nicely over the next 15-20 years, if you can wait that long. 92 Points

Medium bodied, well priced, sweet, easy drinking charmer with a floral, spicy, honeyed, tropical fruit character that can be enjoyed after dinner, or due to its lighter style, as an aperitif. 89 Points

2007 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 91

The nose is packed with honeyed citrus peel, tropical fruits, vanilla and floral scents. The perfect blend of sweet and fresh, the wine ends with spicy, honey coated, pineapple, apricot and nuts. This is a wine I seldom taste, so it was nice to see it after dinner. This is a strong value buy for Sauternes lovers. 91 Points

2005 Château de Malle  (Sauternes) 91

At 10, this is really showing a lot of sweet, honey coated, candied orange, apricot, tangerine and pineapple. There is good acidity in the wine that keeps it fresh, along with enough sweet, honeyed fruits in the finish. 91 Points
