Château de Malle

Château de Malle Sauternes is located in Preignac. There are 25 hectares of vines and the average age is between 30 - 40 years.

Tasting Notes

The 2009 de Malle has a satisfyingly delineated bouquet with fresh pineapple and white peach aromas that is more a case of finesse than power. The palate has a lovely coconut tinged, viscous entry with a fine thread of acidity. The oak is rather dominant towards the finish, although it has decent fruit to maintain balance.

Food Matches

Delicious with foie gras with fig chutney.
