2004 Château Tirecul la Gravière "Cuvée Chateau" Monbazillac (500ml) (Previously $35)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tirecul’s sweet and decadent 2004 Cuvee Chateau exhibits apricot/peach marmalade, creme brulee and maple syrup aromas and flavors in a full-bodied, unctuous, but well-balanced, pure style. This dessert wine is already remarkably evolved, and should drink well for another 10-15 years - good luck deferring your gratification! As always, this wine is a sensational value.

2005 Guiraud, Sauternes

97 points James Suckling: "This appears to be the synthesis of the fabulous 2001 and 2003. It shows wonderful aromas of botrytis spice, honey and citrus rind. Lots of fruit with a tropical fruit undertone of mango and papaya on the palate. Intense finish. Too excellent not to drink."

2010 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes (375ml) (Previously $23)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Raymond-Lafon 2010 has a complex bouquet with lemon peel, almond and quince aromas, and is well-defined with an impressive sense of energy. The palate is well-balanced with a viscous opening, and well-judged acidity. It builds toward a rounded, pineapple and marmalade- tinged finish. This has good weight and presence with plenty of strikingly fresh acidity to keep everything balanced. This wine deserves a round of applause.

2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml) Top Pick!
2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml)

Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of 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 2010 has wonderful pineapple and coconut aromas that carry through onto the lush palate.

Ramos Pinto White Port

White port is one of the world's most civilized aperitifs, and we here at K&L think that the Ramos Pinto is one of the best. Made from Malvasia Fina and Codega grapes (mostly grown on the Ramos Pinto estate) that are picked quite ripe, this wine is then aged for three years in traditional port barrels called "pipes." Full-bodied and exotic, it is incomparable on the rocks with an orange twist. Since it has had extended barrel age and is fortified, it is no problem to have keep it in the refrigerator for a month after opening it, but I doubt it will last ... Read More »

2014 Saracco Moscato d'Asti

This 2014 release is too new to have already been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 90 points from Antonio Galloni. In the context of another previous vintage, Galloni writes: ""Paolo Saracco remains the reference point producer for Moscato d’Asti, with perhaps one or two close peers, and that is it. I have seen Saracco’s vineyards, and they are great sites, but they aren’t the only top Moscato vineyards, so I am perplexed why no one else can make wines at this level.

It comes in at 103 grams per liter of residual sugar. This opens steely and gripping, with fine acidity, firmness on the finish and enough concentration in this lighter-styled vintage. The best of the trio submitted by Taylor Fladgate this issue, it does everything well and mostly exceeds expectations.

96 points Wine Spectator: "*#23 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. Best after 2008." (9/2004)95 points James Suckling: "Intensely fruity and rich with wonderful sweetness and loads of spicy and honey character with a dried apricot undertone. It hasn’t changed much since I last tasted it, just bottled. Great 2001. Drink ...Read More »

2014 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "Best since 2005? It has a unique style of botrytis intensity yet fresh, agile and bright. It’s full-bodied, delicate and refined. The palate is full of figs, spices, dried mushrooms and earth. It lasts for minutes. It makes you want to drink it now!" (3/2015) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Suduiraut 2014 may well be one of the best Sauternes of the vintage. This year, it is a blend of 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc with a healthy 145 grams per liter residual sugar and 4.5 grams per liter total acidity. It needed some coaxing on the nose so I afforded the sample five min ...Read More »

2014 Samos "Vin Doux" Muscat (500ml)

The signature sweet Muscat dessert wine from this cooperative on the Aegean island of Samos, one of Greece's original co-ops and a top producer of the island's famous Muscat. Samos boasts an extremely steep terrain, which means many of the vineyards here, especially those at high elevation, are planted on pezoules, or terraces. The trouble this provides in terms of necessitating hand harvesting is more than made up for by the wine's quality and immensely pleasurable taste. This dessert wine is fortified to 15% alc. It offers the unctuous, exotic flavors ... Read More »

Heitz Cellar "Ink Grade" Napa Valley Port (375ml)

As Wall Street Journal wine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher advise, "If you ever see Heitz Cellars' Ink Grade Port...grab it!" (from "Give Sweets a Chance," 10/2009).

A blend of eight different Portuguese grape varieties with distinctive character from the Ink Grade Vineyard in Napa Valley, the current blend draws from the 2005, 2006 and 2007 vintages. From the winery: "The deep hue of our Ink Grade Port sets the to... Read More »

Rare Wine Company Historic Series Savannah Verdelho Madeira

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium amber with a green rim. Aromas of burnt orange, tobacco, toffee and herbs, with a hint of potpourri adding an exotic component. Broader and deeper than the Charleston, offering sappy orange marmalade, chestnut honey and toffee flavors underscored by tangy acidity. Shows a sweet, nutty quality on the smoky, gently spicy finish. I like this wine's heft and thrust." (6/2011) K&L Notes: These are the most affordable, representative examples of classic Madeira available. A collaboration between the importer and Barbeito's Ricardo Diogo Vasconcelos Freitas, the ...

2001 Nairac, Sauternes (375ml)

95-100 points Wine Spectator: "Intensely botrytised, with loads of allspice and mineral character, yet lively and exciting. Full-bodied, racy and very long. Fresh sweetness." (Web-2002)"93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. What a lovely, pure bouquet with scents of brioche, honey and fresh peaches with wonderful delineation. The palate has a slightly viscous entry, very well balanced with brioche, lemon curd and vanilla, leading to an oaky, floral finish. Very well made. This is a great Sauternes from Nairac. Tasted March 2011. (NM-Wine Journal)" (5/2011) 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Ex ...Read More »

Taylor 20 Year Old Tawny Port

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A complex, wood aged wine, this 20-year-old has a perfumed, dry style. Walnut and spice flavors blend together with the spirit and mature acidity. It’s rich, with just the right amount of age." (6/2012)93 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, with a spicy nose, this offers flavors of fig, dried apricot, mango and ginger. Complex and elegant, delivering concentrated crème brûlée and tropical fruit notes that linger on the vibrant and buttery finish." (2/2014)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at Taylor’s tawny seminar in London. The 20-Year Old tawny is initially a little reticent on the nose, mellow and refined with s ...Read More »

2005 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

94 points Wine Spectator: "The vivid acidity defines this mineral-laden, sweet Tokaji, which offers a mix of dried citrus, orange peel, antique furniture and smoky mineral flavors wrapped around a tight core. The finish evokes hard citrus candy and baked earth accents. Best from 2012 through 2040. 800 cases made. –BS" (10/2010) K&L Notes: Decanter Magazine gives this unctuos offering four stars, describing it as rich with "almonds, peaches, spices, complex and layered flavours with nicely balanced acidity."

Valdespino "Don Gonzalo" Oloroso VOS Jerez

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Don Gonzalo Oloroso 20 Anos VOS, produced with Palomino grapes from the Carrascal vineyards, is fermented in stainless steel and aged for over 20 years in oak botas. It is a very serious Oloroso, even if it’s not totally dry. It offers bitter almonds, hazelnuts, incense, Cuban cigar ash, and dark chocolate as well as a complex, a very intense, round and ample palate. This wine really fills your mouth. Very intense and with great acidity, it represents very good value for the quality it delivers. A tamed beast. (LG)" (8/2013)92 points Wine Spectator: "Features toffee, singed ...Read More »
