Made in a light, fruity style emphasizing finesse and elegance, the 2001 Filhot exhibits abundant amounts of sweet pineapple and sealing wax-like characteristics, along with pure, clean flavors. Slightly sweet, it does not possess the body or power of the vintage’s bigger examples, but it is a refreshing, vibrant Sauternes to enjoy over the next 12-15 years. RP
Pale yellow. Licorice, stone and mint on the nose. High-toned and liqueur-like in the mouth, with the licorice note carrying through. A distinctly edgy style of wine that lacks the pliancy and unctuousness of the best 22s. Finishes with a lingering suggestion of sultana raisin. This needs patience.- Stephen Tanzer - Stephen Tanzer (7/24)
