Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Domaine de l’Alliance 2011 is missing some presence on the nose compared to its peers: light undergrowth scents permeating the honeyed fruit, yet it never quite gets out of second gear. The palate is medium-bodied with orange peel and mandarin on the entry. There is a good level of botrytis here although it tapers slightly during the second half and does not quite deliver the density of others. Yes, it is a conservative Domaine de l’Alliance and yet it is redeemed by its purity and restrained elegance." - Neal Martin (Feb 2015)

Wine Spectator:
"Forward in feel, with a creamy side to the pineapple, yellow apple, ginger, white peach and quince notes. Gives way to a marzipan edge through the finish. Drink now through 2017. 119 cases imported." - JM (Web Only - 2014)
