    Full yellow color. Pure but reticent nose suggests peach. Rich, concentrated and plump; not yet showing its complexity but there's a succulence here that's captivating. Finishes quite persistent, with a hint of cherry-almond. Very promising.

    Green apple, toffee and lemon tart aromas open to a full body. Very sweet, with caramel, cooked apple and light vanilla flavors. Long and flavorful. Dense and sweet.

    Rather catty and pinched on the palate - not as ample and opulent as one would like. Pretty simple and sugary on the finish.

    Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Chateau de Malle has a pleasing, harmonious, botrytis-rich bouquet with fine delineation: honeysuckle, minerals and orange-blossom gently floating from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with tensile citrus fruit that marries beautifully with the clear honey, mandarin and citrus notes. There is a compelling build to this wine in the mouth. A top de Malle to savor now and over the next 15-20 years.

The vineyards are comprised of 27 ha of Sauternes AOC land and 23 ha of Graves AOC land which lay in a continuous stretch around the perimeter of the chateau. The land is slightly hilly, with subsoils of silica, sand, and clay-gravel. The Chateau de Malle is classified as a Sauternes Grand Cru Classe, with characteristic aromas of honey, almonds and candied apricot. In Graves, the M. de Malle is a dry white wine matured in new oak barrels.
