The 2009, aged 26 months in oak barrels, slowly reveals itself in olfaction, around fresh fruits (apricot) and white flowers. Ample and persistent, the palate is oriented towards pear and honey, and reveals a very successful balance between acidity and liquor. A harmonious bottle, to be served today as in three to five years, with cheeses or a fruit tart. *(Guide Hachette des vins 2014) Full and round (2017-2032). 15/20 (Guide d'achat des Crus/RVF-September 2013) Beautiful golden yellow colour. Nose slowly opening in a bouquet of dried flowers and citrus fruits. In the mouth, a very concentrated attack, an evolution that remains fresh just like the finish. A well-born vintage that will gain in complexity and length. 91/100 - (Gilbert and Gaillard 2013 - May 2012) With a golden yellow colour, it is powerful and structured, with aromas of candied fruit and spices, with a hint of brioche bread on the palate, and a long finish. (Dussert-Gerber Guide 2013) 90-91/100 - (Gilbert & Gaillard Wine Guide International 2010) 90-92/100 - (Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide) It is the wood that is taking over a little today with notes of pine and cloves. Behind this veil appear notes of sage, honey, apricot on a warm finish. 15.5/20 - (GAULTMILLAU - June-July-August 2010) Reducing, pear, dense, complex, long, fine, fine, beautiful persistence. Good potential. 16/20 - (Le Point - Wine Special - May 6, 2010) All the great wine will be aged for twenty-four months in barrels of a wine from Yquem or Guiraud. Only the heart of the harvest (70% of the volume) will produce Château Lamothe. 85% Sémillon, 10% Sauvignon, 5% Muscadelle for this full and very round wine. 14,5-15,5/20 (La Revue du Vin de France- May 2010)
If you don't come to Lamothe, Lamothe will go to you!
