2004 Nairac, Barsac (Previously $30)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Clean, ripe and pure on the nose, with stone fruit and citrus aromas complicated by minerals, clove and vanillin oak. At once fresh and ripe in the mouth, with intense flavors of apricot nectar and orange. Finishes ripe and long, with a strong spice character to the fruit flavors, and firm spine. Very promising."

The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities.

Dense, spicy and thick on the palate, offering superb purity of fruit framed and lifted by ineffable spicy and minty high tones. Not a particularly fat or powerful style; in fact, the perfectly integrated acidity gives shape to the middle palate and extends the finish, which displays late botrytis notes of barley sugar and honey.

The soft, intensely floral, crystalline finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. The 2013 Doisy-Daëne impresses for its superb drinkability.

2014 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Rieussec 2014 is a blend of 93% Semillon, 5% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, picked from 15 to 29 October through seven tries, the yield half the normal crop at 13 hectoliters per hectare. Charles Chevalier, how lest we forget started here and not chez Lafite, told me that the beginning of September had overripe grapes with passerillage – the second part had very good levels of botrytis. The blend is from these two parts. The bouquet is very well defined with crystal clear honeysuckle and white peach scents. The palate is beautifully balan ...Read More »

Niepoort 20-year-old Tawny Port

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A deliciously satisfying wood-aged Port. It has an intense fruitiness, with layers of acidity and oxidated notes. It's concentrated, yet shows lightness and poise. (RV)" (6/2012) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV 20 Year Old Tawny Port was bottled in 2016 with a long cork. On first taste, I liked this far more than the 1997 Colheita reviewed this issue (about the same age). This has a bit more weight, a bit more intensity of complex flavors, a hint of brandy and a bit more power. (MS)" (3/2017) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "No tasting note given." (10/2004) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A refined and delicate tawny, with pure-tasting flavors of ...Read More »

Rare Wine Company Historic Series Charleston Sercial Madeira

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "***Editors' Choice*** The Historic Series are simply great Madeiras at reasonable prices. The Charleston Sercial is the driest of the collection, offering nutty aromas tinged with honey, caramel and maple syrup. Dried figs, honey and candied citrus flavors mark the palate, which is wonderfully smooth. The long finish features racy yet balanced acidity. (JC)" (11/2006) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber. Gingerbread, orange zest, clove, blond tobacco and honey on the nose. Spicy citrus and poached pear flavors are lifted by zesty acidity and show a gentle smoky quality on the ba ...Read More »

2003 Rieussec, Sauternes

97 points James Suckling: "So rich and powerful with so much dried apricots and citrus aromas and flavors. Caramel and toffee. Full and very sweet. Amazing." (10/2016) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Reticent but pure aromas of fruit salad, spices and vanilla, lifted by floral and mineral nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, fat fruit flavors are complemented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The sexy oak treatment gives lift to the wine. A bit youthfully aggressive but very long on the back end, showing vanillin oak and a bit of warmth. But this one offers superb potential.

2009 Climens, Barsac (375ml)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Climens is certainly more expressive on the nose compared to the 2010 Climens with potent honeysuckle, fresh pear and orange blossom that gently unfurl from the glass. Compared to the 2009 Rieussec for example, this is powerful but not quite as flamboyant. The palate is just fantastic, so energetic and tensile with layers of minerally, honeyed fruit laced with spice, sea salt, a touch of licorice and quince. It will be a multi-dimensional Climens that has a very long future ahead, a killer Sauternes that is going to give a great deal of pleasure ...Read More »

2007 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "An unctuous style, this exhibits vanilla, orange, peach and butterscotch aromas and flavors on a creamy texture. Soft for the style, but still vibrant and focused. Excellent length. Drink now through 2028. 480 cases made. (BS, Web-2014)" Wine & Spirits: "This is clean and bright, a fresh style emphasizing high-toned fruit flavors like lemon and crisp peaches...it’s extremely inviting in its juiciness. For fruit desserts, like a marzipan-lined peach tart." (12/2012)

2013 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml)

94-97 points Wine Spectator: "Packed, with dense, creamy layers of glazed pear and green fig, tarte Tatin, marmalade and almond cream. Despite its weight, this brings you back over and over thanks to its well-embedded acidity. Impressive and very long. Seems the new owner (Silvio Denz) is off to a good start here. (Web Only—2014)" 93-94 points James Suckling: "A full and concentrated young Sauternes with lots of botrytis spice character such as dried mushrooms and nutmeg. It's full body, medium sweet with a wonderful length of fruit and intense acidity. It's layered and fascinating. Lots of dried fruits too. Sliced ...Read More »

Fonseca "Bin 27" Port

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Lucid dark ruby color, the Bin 27 has a sweet nose of raisin and fig, complemented by copious dark cherry and black plum. The palate is sweet and spicy on the entry with that fig motif continuing with plush dark chocolate infused black fruit. The finish is short and abrupt, but there is a lingering peppery note to keep customer satisfied. The Bin 27 forms a perfect introduction to the delights of Port. (NM)" (2/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Full, rich and fruity wine, enticingly aromatic, with strawberry fruits and an easy, just tannic edge. The wine is soft, ripe, the fruits fin ...Read More »
