The wine is rarely presented as a primeur, which is a pity. The 2015 is a well-structured, light, airy wine, but of good constitution. A very successful achievement. 0-10 years old. 16.5/20 (Bernard Burtschy, l'Avis du Vin du Figaro May 2016) Light yellow colour. Fruity nose. Pleasant and fruity on the palate, tasty, of medium body and length. 15/20 87/100 (Jean-Marc Quarin April 30, 2016) Broad seductive nose. Marzipan and interest. Very big in terms of weight and sweetness. Flattering and seductive. Just a little chewiness on the nish after all the weight and sweetness. Well done! 17.5/20 (Jancis Robinson 29 April 2016) Extremely dense and rich with an oily texture. Lots of dried pineapple and honey character. Full body, sweet and rich. 91-92/100 (James Suckling March April 2016) Others: 15/20 87/100 (Jean-Marc Quarin April 2016) - 90/100 15/20 (Bettane and Desseauve En Magnum April 29, 2016)
If you don't come to Lamothe, Lamothe will go to you!
A well-balanced Sauternes will be drunk at any time. Very resistant to alterations, only 1 bottle can be kept for several weeks. On your deckchair while reading a book or by the fire in winter. Also ideal for your social and cultural events (exhibitions, openings...). A young Sauternes will drink quite fresh, an older one can drink at room temperature.
Small piece of foie gras on a fig, goat cheese, roquefort cheese, cheese, salads, seeds (walnut/ignon/kernel/hazelnut). Sea side: (sole, scallops, mussels, oysters, lobster). Its sweetness will soothe game. Desserts on fruit and acidity will also be appropriate. Roasted poultry, sweet, salty and spicy dishes. Last conclusive experience: a Roquefort pear pie and some nuts.
