"The Château Les Justices 2014 has the same level of residual sugar as the Château Latrezotte '14 (112 grams per liter) but I feel this is a superior wine, perhaps the best that I have tasted at this early stage. It is a blend of 90% Sémillon with 8% Sauvignon Bland and 2% Muscadelle and is bestowed with a clean and pure bouquet, quite refined and elegant with honey and dried pineapple scents. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, a slightly waxiness to the texture here but nicely controlled and then vivacious towards the finish. There is a nascent energy to this Sauternes, a great wine from Julie Gonet and her team." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #218

"A solid, unctuous, forward style, with friendly pineapple chutney, creamed yellow apple and mirabelle plum notes, backed by a honeyed finish. Has good energy but will be ready on the sooner side. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Correct and rather attractively burnished. Very forward and slightly brûlée but an easy Sauternes for early drinking." JancisRobinson.com
