2014 Haut Charmes, Sauternes

Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of one the region's most legendary château. While we aren't allowed to actually reveal the source, it's safe to say its location in the Ciron Valley exposes the Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fruit to conditions perfect for the development of botrytis. Charming, elegant and an exceptional value for what's in the bottle. A rich wine with fine acidity, the wine has wonderful pineapple and coconut aromas that carry through onto the lush palate. A stunning wine just like its big bro... Read More »

Lustau East India Solera

92 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a selection from botas of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez raised separately and then blended to age for three years in solera. The result puts the sweetness of the PX in front, with flavors of plum jam and tobacco. The salinity of the Oloroso brings freshness and fine minerality that play softly in the background." (6/2011) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This traditional wine from Lustau is made in the Cream style. It’s dark and pretty, with PX-ish prune and caramel aromas. It’s not as thick as Pedro Ximénez, and thus isn’t syrupy. But it’s certainly rich and full of cookie, molasses, ...Read More »

Lustau Dry Amontillado "Los Arcos" Solera Reserva

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The non-vintage Dry Amontillado Los Arcos Solera Reserva reveals a medium amber hue along with a nutty, honeyed, dry personality with great acid... The portfolio of under $25 a bottle selections represents remarkable value for their complex, well-made personalities. Lustau includes a bottling date code as purchasers would want to buy Finos and Manzanillas as young as possible. It is difficult to describe the glories of sherry, but I’ll try. These Solera Reservas are all great reference points at a low price point from Lustau. (RP)" (8/2012) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Walnut, halva, ...Read More »

2014 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Doisy-Daëne 2014 is bestowed with 144 grams per liter residual sugar and a pH of 3.7. It is much more introspective compared to the Coutet at the moment, perhaps because of less residual, but it is fragrant and ethereal with wild honey, yellow flower and orange blossom scents developing with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with superb tension and fruit intensity on the entry. It is more linear than recent vintages, minerally with a lovely twist of sour lemon imparting tension and vivacity on the crystalline finish. This is a fabulo ...Read More »

On the nose, this one easily shifts from ripe apricot and peach fruit to nuts and saline. The palate starts with a blast of coffee and mocha and then folds in brown sugar and spice. Sweet, long and generous ...Read More »

2014 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-99 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Apricot tones with lively acidity give this rich wine a vein of freshness. Pear and white peach notes offer weight, while a lime backbone brings levity. There is a richness from the botrytis that is lifted by this wines delicious freshness." (4/2015) 98 points James Suckling: "Very subtle Yquem on the nose with dried pineapple, lemons, green apples and hints of botrytis. The palate grabs you by the arms and shows you superb concentration of spices, dried fruit, phenolics and incredible energy. Nothing is like this from Sauternes this vintage! Drink whenever you like. ...Read More »

2013 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Rayne-Vigneau, picked from September 21 until October 30 over four tries, is being blended from 28 lots and sees 40% new oak. It is still showing quite conspicuous oak on the nose, although there is clearly sufficient honeyed fruit to support it. With continued aeration, it reveals attractive but subtle almond and spice scents. The palate is well-balanced with a lively honeyed entry. This is already very cohesive, with fine delineation, and the finish is very composed, with a saltiness lingering on the aftertaste. It is a classic Rayne-Vigneau t ...Read More »

2014 Cornet et Cie "La Cave de l'Abbe Rous" Banyuls Rimage (500ml)

This intense, ruby-colored wine is from the extreme south of France, where the Pyrenees meet the Mediterranean and the vines grown on steep, schistous terraces. Rimage is a Catalan word which means vintage. Therefore a Rimage Banyuls is a fortified wine in which all grapes come from a certain vintage, much like a Colheita or vintage Port. Made from Grenache Noir, the wine's bouquet is full of ripe, red fruits with hints of vanilla spice. On the palate, flavors of chocolate and cherry dominate and the finish is long and elegant. Sometimes referred to as ... Read More »

1977 Climens, Barsac (375ml)

Jancis Robinson: "TA 4.1 g/l (sulphuric), RS 103g/l. A frosty year and thus very low yields (4 hl/ha). Deep orangey gold. Relatively reserved on the nose then a burst of intense flavour on the palate. Bittersweet Seville oranges and vigorous zesty spice on the long finish. Great vigour and purity and persistence. 18/20 Points (JH)" (5/2009)

Gonzalez Byass "Viña AB" Amontillado

93 points Wine & Spirits: "This is the youngest Amontillado from Gonzalez Byass, with four years of aging under flor and another four years in oxidative aging. True to form, it is a delightful wine, graceful and elegant in its fine balance between acidity, minerality and a soft, almost delicate body. It takes on surprising force with air, a sense of limestone in scent and flavor that propels the wine toward something rich, like grilled sea bass." (10/2015) 90 points Wine Spectator: "A dry version, with good tension to the walnut, singed orange peel and cardamom flavors. Offers a focused, salty finish. (JM) ...Read More »

Ramos Pinto Quinta 20 Year Old Tawny Port

94 points Wine & Spirits: "This glossy wine sustains a delicate freshness in its floral fruit. That bright note of tart strawberries and jasmine holds to springtime, while the figgier richness and detailed tannins provide a structure that feels warm and autumnal. It’s a delicious contrast, the elements finely interwoven, a satisfying tawny to extend a holiday meal." (12/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "It comes in at 122.3 grams per liter of residual sugar and was aged in wood of varying sizes and types (Portuguese and French oak, chestnut and cherry tree). Average in concentration, this is a friendly 20-year ...Read More »

Bodegas Yuste "Aurora" Pedro Ximenez Sanlucar de Barrameda (500ml)

Aged in a facility on the eastern part of Sanlucar, the Aurora PX shows a classic nose of baked brown sugar, praline and dates. Like nearly all Pedrox Ximenez based Sherries, the PX grapes for this bottling are grown, dried, and then pressed and fortified in the Montilla Moriles D.O., just south of Córdoba. Rich and generously sweet on the palate, it's a great way to close out a meal, whether in your wine glass or poured over vanilla ice cream!

2000 Dereszla "Aszú 6 Puttonyos" Tokaji (500ml)

96 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Terrific. Floral, quince and apple aromas take on honey, peach and mineral accents in the mouth, all displayed on an ethereal, lighter-than-air frame. Bracing acidity is deftly integrated into the whole, and it ends with a mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. (BS)" (6/2004)

2013 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml)

93-96 points Vinous: "A model of total grace and understatement, the 2013 Doisy-Daëne is drop-dead-gorgeous. Freshly cut white flowers, mint, sweet spices, pears and lychee all meld together in the glass in an effortless, gracious wine. The soft, intensely floral, crystalline finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. The 2013 Doisy-Daëne impresses for its superb drinkability. If I was going to buy only one moderately-priced Sauternes in 2013, Doisy-Daëne would be it." (4/2014) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Denis Dubourdieu has a created a fine Doisy-Daene, with attractive white peach and honeysuc ...Read More »
