    June 15, 2019 - Prior bottle was almost exactly a year ago and this continues to show consistently. Caramel, spice, honey, tropical notes and burnt sugar notes on the nose. Medium bodied with caramel and honey initially upfront, adding orange, mango and pineapple and then golden peach through the middle. Backside retains slightly tart lemon note along with acidity and balanced spices. The fruit is the star here, with the acidity providing structure enough for the wine to show well and not come off as flabby. This is probably best drunk over the next 3-5 years as it may show some additional complexity down the road, but extended aging at the current level of acidity is a dice roll.

    April 14, 2019 - These half bottles of Myrat were only about $20 so a good value. Spice is heavy on the nose and developing a darker color already, somewhat of a burnt orange feel to it. A bit short on the finish and not very complex but there is a lingering honey taste to it so not bad.

    March 12, 2019 - Not a good showing at all. Rich tropical fruits, drying a bit, but with an almost chemical bitterness and not much acidity support. Never finished it over three days and it was going further from drinkability over that time.

    I swear, this seems to be on some kind of boomerang. The past two bottles have been better than all preceding them, except the very first. Chugging along nicely.

    September 20, 2018 - Kept under condition 2 from June 2010 until september 2012, since then under condition 1 (see my profile). Color: a bit dark golden, towards orange. Banana and passionfruit in the nose. In the taste apricot and passionfruit. Very sweet but with a nice, interesting acidity. A slight, not disturbing bitterness in the finish. The tast was a bit "flat", modest in a certain way, and I guess that this is not the most complex Sauternes. But is was nevertheless a complete and very attractive wine. At the second day clearly less detailed. Best to drink within two or three years? At the first day 90-91, at the second 87-88.

    (Château de Myrat (Sauternes)) A rich orange-gold in the glass. The nose is enticing although somewhat reduced at first, remaining tight, inexpressive, and yet it seems overtly sweet. It was only really after 24 hours that the wine really came together, the wine blossoming to reveal a pure and more evocative layer of fruit, principally bitter orange more than tinged with botrytis apricot and barley; it is much more convincing than I had originally hoped. The palate is full and rich, intense and brightly defined. It has a lively style, the bitterness and bite of Seville oranges coming through here very nicely, matching the sweetness, bringing the fruit elements to the fore, carrying them through to the finish. This is an impressive showing from this relatively unknown estate, even if it does feel rather pithy at times, and somewhat robust in the finish. Alcohol 13.5%.
