2011 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* A gorgeous wine that offers a firm, botrytis character, with aromas of spice, apple and orange zest. It’s powerful and meant for long aging. (RV)" (5/2012) 95 points Wine Spectator: "*Smart Buys and #18 on the Top 100 of 2014* Pure, with piercing persimmon, pineapple, white peach and quince flavors. Gorgeous floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom form the backdrop, while a heather accent caresses the finish. Overwhelmingly pure in the end, with a finish that sails on and on. Best from 2016 through 2035. (JM)" (3/2014) 94 points James Suckling: "A white with peaches, honey and lemon-curd ...Read More »

2011 d'Yquem, Sauternes Top Pick!
2011 d'Yquem, Sauternes

99 points Wine Spectator: "A lovely, creamy, tropical style, with mango, papaya and guava notes lending a caressing feel, while singed almond and warm piecrust accents blossom through the lush finish. Just when you think that's all there is, toasted coconut, fig, orange blossom and persimmon details kick in, lending length and dimension. The finish is ridiculously long. Best from 2020 through 2060. (JM)" (3/2014) 98 points James Suckling: "Crazy minerality to this, with lots of dried mango, pineapple and papaya on the nose. Botrytis-spice and nutmeg undertones. Full body, very sweet, with superb depth of frui ...Read More »

2011 d'Armailhac, Pauillac

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Packed with dark tannins and spicy wood, the wine is rich, dark and very structured. It is powered as much by its tannins as its wood. (RV)" (5/2014) 90 points James Suckling: "This is fresh and clean with citrus and currant character. Medium body, fine tannins and a delicate finish. A little lean but I like it. Clarity of fruit here. Give it three or four years to soften. Try in 2017." (2/2014) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Subtle, vinous aromas of blackcurrant, sour red cherry, violet and minerals. Sweet and silky on entry, then tight in the middle, showing terrific purity and verve to the fl ...Read More »

2011 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* So smooth, this is a rich, grandiose wine. Although it is full of black currant fruits and spice flavors, the texture is most impressive. Dusty tannins are integrated with juicy fruits seamlessly. The purest fruit flavors are allied to linear tannins in a precise yet generous way. The wine is evolving beautifully, but do not drink before 2020." (5/2014) 95 points James Suckling: "A wine with lots of ripe berries, verging on dried fruits. Full and chewy with ripe, round, chewy tannins. It needs lots of bottle age. A wine of steel. From biodynamically grown grapes, ...Read More »

2011 Croix de Beaucaillou, St-Julien

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "No longer a second wine of Ducru Beaucaillou but a growth in its own right, this is a powerful wine, very dense and muscular. Rich berry fruits push through the firm structure to give a wine that will become opulent as it develops. Drink from 2018." (5/2014) 91 points James Suckling: "This is juicy and fruity with mineral and currant character. It's full-bodied with silky tannins and a fresh finish. Structured. Second wine of Ducru. Try in 2017." (2/2014) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Offers a vivid bolt of dark currant and blackberry fruit, lined with briar, ganache and tar notes that drive the finish along. Pack ...Read More »

2011 Haut-Bailly, Pessac-Léognan

95 points James Suckling: "Wow. Wonderfully aromatic nose of currants, blackberries and lilacs. Full body but refined and beautiful. The quality of the tannins is exception. So fine. Lovely austerity and tension on the finish. Better in 2016." (2/2015) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The saturated ruby/purple-hued 2011 Haut-Bailly exhibits a glorious, subtle, noble set of aromatics consisting of red and black currants, sweet cherries, graphite, truffles and a faint hint of wood spice. The wine hits the palate with the profound elegance and purity that have become so much a characteristic under Wilmers and Sanders. ...Read More »

2011 Certan de May, Pomerol

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample* Firm and concentrated, this wine has great structure and density along with acidity and berry flavor. There is an attractive final spicy element." (4/2012) 88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Aromatic herbs, red fruits and a touch of game on the nose, nicely lifted by sweet spice and violet notes. Bright and fresh in the mouth, with the cassis and herb flavors nicely supported by lively acidity and smooth tannins. Finishes with a coffee note. (ID)" (5/2012) 90 points James Suckling: "The aromas in this 2011 are impressive, with flowers, plums and currants. Full body with velvety tannins ...Read More »

2011 Figeac, St-Émilion

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is powerful and concentrated, with the high proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend standing out firmly. It is dark, rich, packed with ripe black fruits and sweet tannins. Drink from 2018." (5/2014) 93 points James Suckling: "This is very aromatic, with almond, berry and chocolate character. Full body with fine tannins and a chewy finish, but the tannins are soft and polished. Needs at least three to four years to soften even more. Try in 2018." (2/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "The plum and black cherry fruit has a floral edge, giving this version an elegant feel overall, while subtle tobacco, sin ...Read More »

2011 de Myrat, Sauternes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and lush, with broad apricot, ginger, dacquoise and hazelnut notes, backed by lingering date, orange zest, marzipan and marmalade hints. A big, unctuous style. Best from 2015 through 2025." (3/2014) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. Blessed with a refulgent golden color, the Château de Myrat 2011 has a more complex bouquet than its peers with clear honey, mandarin and light petrol notes, the delineation just lost a little in the haze of alcohol, yet still attractive. The palate is medium-bodied with pineapple and peach on the entr ...Read More »

It’s like looking through a thin, perfectly clear crystal. Aromas of sliced apples, lemons, fresh pineapples and lilacs. Full body but perfectly balanced between fruit and acidity. Mineral and intense. Lightly salty and bitter like a peach pit. Electrifying wine. Greatest white ever from here. It lasts for minutes on the palate." (01/2014)

(RV)" (5/2012) 91-92 points James Suckling: "Solid and layered with sliced green apple, lemon, chalk and minerals. Full and structured. The mouth feel of a top red, even though it's white." (3/2012) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Steely and focused, with a strong quinine accent leading the way, followed by notes of green almond, yellow apple skin, fennel, lemon curd and fleur de sel. A bright, juicy finish provides interest. (JM)" (3/2013)
