Château Lamothe - château lamothe 2001 - Liquoreux - 2001

A beautiful seductive wine with its nose of candied fruit, full and persistent, of a beautiful complexity, very rich, with a very smooth mouth, ideal on roasted poultry. (DUSSERT-GERBER Guide 2007). 16.5/20 - (La Revue du Vin de France 2007). 16/20 - (GaultMillau 2007). Subtle yet complex, with honey, floral, mineral and apple tart character. Medium to full-bodied, with a medium sweetness and a long fresh finish. Good intensity. Best after 2006. (90/100 - James Suckling - The Wine Spectator - September 15, 2004). Nose is rich and powerful. Lovely creamy richness on the palate, showing very good potential. ****(Decanter - April 22, 2002). The wine, which is still cloudy, displays magnificent promises that will make a mark in the history of this ever-growing wine. The aromas of citrus peel are combined with a spicy mouth, a great richness of liquor and a long finish. The whole has a lot of balance. 8.5/10 ****(*) (La Revue du Vin de France - June 2002) (Bettane & Desseauve tasting notes - April 22, 2002). Thick and very good indeed. Superb concentration of dried fruits, from pineapples to mango, with masses of spices. Full-bodied, very sweet and a long, long finish. I really like this. - James.Suckling. 92-94/100 - (Wine Spectator - March 28, 2002). Gran bel vino quello di Lamothe Despujols, che va ben oltre le più rosee aspettative e che francamente, sull'esperienza delle annate precedenti, ho giudicato con un po' di prudenza. Davvero ottimo comunque l'impatto al palato, con la sensazione grassa ben ravivata dall'acidità e che insieme permettono al vino di avere una lunghezza davvero eccelente. Meno convincente la componente aromatica, che a più riprese mette in luce una vena iodata non trascurabile, anche se al momento non ancora fuori registro. ***(*) (Enogea - April 2002). Very expressive nose, with a spectacular mouth of grapefruit and honey. All the sweet flavours of botrytis well present in this sample, which is destined for a very bright future. 16.5/20 (Le Journal du médecin n° 1420 - April 5, 2002). Nose is rich and power full. Lovely creamy richness on the palate, showing very good potential. Ready 2008 onwards. **** (Decanter - September 21, 2001).

The Wine Estate

Since 1961, our family has owned this 16th century Château and its 7.5 hectare vineyard in the heart of the village of Sauternes. On this gravel and clay soil we adopt a reasoned cultivation and a great care in the selection of botrytised grains. After more than 2 years of ageing, the wine is ample, well balanced and persistent. We are proud of our 1855 Grand Cru Classé and cultivate this excellence.
