"A very lifted nose with great definition: notes of honey, white peach, mango and dried apricots. The palate is very intense with superb acidity and vibrancy, good levels of botrytis with a clean, fresh, vibrant honeyed finish.This is a superb 2007 and a great success for Myrat." Robert Parker

2007 VINTAGE

94 Tasted single blind against its peers. I was so glad to re-taste the excellent Chateau de Myrat 2007 in bottle. It has a deeper color than its peers and the nose has a profound depth, offering pure scents of white peach and quince. The palate is rich on the entry and displays an engaging nuttiness from start to finish with dried honey, almond, and a touch of ginger lingering in the mouth. Long and persistent, this Chateau de Myrat is well worth seeking out. Tasted January 2011. - Neil Martin
96 Darker in color than most 2007 Sauternes, showing intense aromas of dried apricot, with toffee notes and an almost smoky character. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a full-blown dried fruit and raisin flavor. Long and superbly rich. –JS
  Myrat 2007 already offers all the pleasures of a mature sauternes. Notes of caramel, bitter orange, plum honey and dried apricots mingle with a rich liquor wish. The finish is long, with a hint stuffed.
