      Winemaker Notes

      Critical Acclaim

      WS 96
      Wine Spectator
      Darker in color than most 2007 Sauternes, showing intense aromas of dried apricot, with toffee notes and an almost smoky character. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a full-blown dried fruit and raisin flavor. Long and superbly rich. Best after 2014.

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      Tasted single blind against its peers. I was so glad to re-taste the excellent Chateau de Myrat 2007 in bottle. It has a deeper color than its peers and the nose has a profound depth, offering pure scents of white peach and quince. The palate is rich on the entry and displays an engaging nuttiness from start to finish with dried honey, almond, and a touch of ginger lingering in the mouth. Long and persistent, this Chateau de Myrat is well worth seeking out. Tasted January 2011.

      Chateau de Myrat, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
      Image of winery
      Chateau de Myra has a history that begins in the late 1700's, many transfers and a lack of documentation makes it difficult to monitor developments. However, it is reasonably clear that it is the family Dumirat who made the chateau its name in the early 1800's.

      The name was Chateau Mirat which was later revised to Chateau de Mirat. During the 1855 classification the castle was owned by the family Molle, which at that time got Chateau de Mirat classified in Les seconds Crus.

      When Chateau de Myrat got the current spelling is unclear but it must have been after the classification 1855. Despite the extensive restoration of the vineyard, which was completed 1945, Max de Pontac was not pleased with the results, and 1976 he took the courageous decision to pull all the vines at Chateau de Myra. This was a shocking decision that has never before been implemented among the classified castles in Sauternes.

      The sons Jacques and Xavier became clear with the new plantings 1988, and today Chateau de Myrat withdrawn its role among the classified castles in Sauternes.

      Sauternes

      View all wine

      Sweet and unctuous but delightfully charming, the finest Sauternes typically express flavors of exotic dried tropical fruit, candied apricot, dried citrus peel, honey or ginger and a zesty beam of acidity.

      Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle are the grapes of Sauternes. But Sémillon's susceptibility to the requisite noble rot makes it the main variety and biggest contributor to what makes Sauternes so unique. As a result, most Sauternes estates are planted to about 80% Sémillon. Sauvignon is prized for its balancing acidity and Muscadelle adds aromatic complexity to the blend with Sémillon.

      Botrytis cinerea or “noble rot” is a fungus that grows on grapes only in specific conditions and its onset is crucial to the development of the most stunning of sweet wines.

      In the fall, evening mists develop along the Garonne River, and settle into the small Sauternes district, creeping into the vineyards and sitting low until late morning. The next day, the sun has a chance to burn the moisture away, drying the grapes and concentrating their sugars and phenolic qualities. What distinguishes a fine Sauternes from a normal one is the producer’s willingness to wait and tend to the delicate botrytis-infected grapes.

      Apart from the classics, we find many regional gems of different styles.

      Late harvest wines are probably the easiest to understand. Grapes are picked so late that the sugars build up and residual sugar remains after the fermentation process. Ice wine, a style founded in Germany and there referred to as eiswein, is an extreme late harvest wine, produced from grapes frozen on the vine, and pressed while still frozen, resulting in a higher concentration of sugar. It is becoming a specialty of Canada as well, where it takes on the English name of ice wine.

      Vin Santo, literally “holy wine,” is a Tuscan sweet wine made from drying the local white grapes Trebbiano Toscano and Malvasia in the winery and not pressing until somewhere between November and March.

      Rutherglen is an historic wine region in northeast Victoria, Australia, famous for its fortified Topaque and Muscat with complex tawny characteristics.
