2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375ml)

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. A stunning wine just like its big broth... Read More »

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "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." (5/2012)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Doisy-Védrines 2011 has a very fragrant, almost floral bouquet with pure honey, quince and yellow flower scents that soar from the glass and embrace you like your favourite aunt. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous texture and superb acidity that really set this Sauternes alight: real tension and a sense of energy here. It just “flows” ...Read More »

2012 Cap de Merle, Lussac-St-Emilion (375ml)

From the importer: "Chateau Cap de Merle is a delicious St-Emilion that represents excellent value. The owners and winemakers — brothers Alain and Jean-Marie Bel — use no wood in vinifying Cap de Merle so its pure, rich and savory Merlot fruit comes through directly upon tasting. The winery’s excellent plateau vineyard on sandstone soil assures optimal ripeness of fruit and supple tannins...2012 is a superb vintage at Cap de Merle.

2011 Petit Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

90 points Wine Spectator: "Solid, with a direct, open-knit core of apricot, toasted almond, piecrust and white peach flavors that meld through the creamy, ginger-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018. (Web-2014)" K&L Notes: The second wine of Château Guiraud and made by Xavier Planty, Château Guiraud's oenologist since 1982. It is a modern style with a high proportion of Sauvignon Blanc (approximately one third), made from a blend of lots fermented in stainless steel (for minerality and freshness), and new French oak barrels, which promote the development of richness, body, and intensity of fl...

The midpalate is densely concentrated with fruit tones, yet lightened by a vein of acidity." (4/2015) 95-98 points Wine Spectator: "Plump at first, with a praline note around the heather, pineapple and nectarine flavors. Stretches out, with a juicy feel, while orange blossom and white peach accents fill in, imparting lift and cut. This packs a bit of power, but there’s lots of buried freshness as well.

(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.

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

The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone.

Clearly, the first tries contain zesty citrus fruit with crisp acidity and strong botrytis character, the second tries lending the structure and the Barsac/Climens character.

Having conducted this practice over many years, I would point out that whereas in some years one has to conjecture to the full, in 2014 the lots were both smaller in number, less heterogeneous and paradoxically, more "complete". This made it easier to envisage the final wine. Here, you had to focus on the second trie where 80% of the crop was picked with widespread onset of botrytis.

1983 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

94 points Wine Spectator: "Nectar-like if a bit on the sweet side, impressively complex, concentrated and focused. Deep gold, big, sweet and rich, with gobs of concentrated fig, brown sugar, butterscotch and oak flavor. A knockout." (1/1988)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Light golden with just the slightest tint of green, the 1983 Rieussec, from an excellent year for Sauternes, is certainly one of this property's greatest wines. Well structured with excellent acidity, and a deep, long, rich, full-bodied, viscous texture, this wine, despite the richness and power, is neither heavy nor cloying. It has gorgeous bal ...Read More »

2013 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2013 Suduiraut is magnificent. A bold, direct Sauternes, the 2013 hits the palate with an exotic mélange of apricot jam, lychee, spices, mint and honey. One of the bigger, deeper wines of the vintage, the Suduiraut is firing on all cylinders today. This is a great showing. (AG)" (4/2014) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Barrel Sample.* Full and rich, this is a powerful wine. It’s packed with botrytis-driven flavors of wild honey and peach, balanced by tight acidity. For long-term aging." (3/2014) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Suduiraut has one of the more flamboyant bouquets of the vintage, one that is act ...Read More »

1988 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The massively rich, yet fresh, lively 1988 offers a compelling, flowery, honeyed bouquet of vanilla custard, buttery orange/apricot scents, and smoky ceme brulee. The wine's zesty acidity brings everything into extraordinary clarity. With plenty of botrytis evident, this is a full-bodied, super-concentrated, fascinating, powerful yet elegant Sauternes that will age beautifully for 25-30 years. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2030." (1/1998)93 points Wine Spectator: "Yellow and gold color. Beautiful honey, lemon cream pie and dried pineapple. Full-bodied, very sweet and layered, with loa ...Read More »

2014 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Lime and ripe pear tones are made richer by the yellow fruits that power out of this wine. Showing nice weight and freshness, this wine will be powerful and hugely concentrated." (4/2015) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "A fresh, clean, direct style in the making, with bright pear, quince and green fig aromas and flavors. Exhibits a sleek feel through the finish. Should be very solid" (4/2015) 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "Silky, mid-weight and gracious, the 2014 Lafaurie-Peyraguey is a fabulous example of the vintage. Candied lemon peel, white flowers, mint and sweet spice are pushed forward in a delicat ...Read More »

2013 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

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 »

2001 Doisy Daene "Extravagant," Sauternes (375ml)

100 points Wine Spectator: "Liquid honey in appearance. Incredibly ripe with dried apricot, orange and mace. Full-bodied, thick and powerful with amazing richness and spiciness. It goes on and on and on. This concentration is phenomenal. Yet it's lively and spicy. Huge finish. Best after 2012." (9/2004)98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is only a tiny amount of the light gold/green-colored 2001 Doisy-Daene l’Extravagant (primarily Sauvignon Blanc). As the name suggests, it is extravagantly rich as well as very full-bodied with extraordinary purity and intensity. The finish lasts for over a minute. There are loa ...Read More »

2001 Clos Haut Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml)

97 points Wine Spectator: "Smells like pure caramel with just a hint of dried apricot. Full-bodied, ultrasweet and fabulously concentrated. This goes on for minutes. Coats your palate but shows fab acidity. Big, juicy young sticky. Best after 2010." (9/2004)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A big time sleeper of the vintage, Clos Haut Peyraguey’s 2001 exhibits abundant amounts of Grand Marnier-like orange flavors intermixed with creme brulee, melted caramels, and hints of pineapples and apricots. Full-bodied, sweet, long, and well-defined, it should drink well for 15+ years." (6/2004)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale orange-gold color. High-ton ...Read More »

2013 Sigalas Rabaud, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. A rich, complete wine, this has beautiful acidity as well as the most intense botrytis character. It’s a wine with long-term aging potential, ripe and already full in the mouth." (3/2014) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Sigalas Rabaud has an intriguing bouquet of candied orange peel, almond and popcorn scents that are already alluring. Give it a few more minutes in the glass, and these are overtaken by mineral scents. The palate is supremely well-balanced with good depth. The acidity is well-judged and, returning after ten minutes, one finds greater tension and complex ...Read More »

2008 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich rather than sweet, this is stuffed full of botrytis. The wine is powered through with this dusty texture, rolling richly but catching the dried fruit character." (04/03/09) 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Rieussec has a lifted, honeyed, slightly petrolly nose with great definition and lift. Touches of white flowers and white peach/honeysuckle develop with further aeration. The palate has a vibrant orange and mandarin flavored entry, very good balance, nicely poised with touches of vanilla inflect... Read More »

2003 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (375ml)

97 points Wine Spectator: "*Highly Recommended* Dark gold in color already, with intense aromas of dried apricots, citrus, honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied, with lovely sweetness and a long, creamy peach tart, tobacco, honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish." (3/2006)93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel, apricot, honey and spices. Supersweet, fat and spicy; wonderfully round, chewy and unctuous. As thick and '03-like as this is, it remains fresh and lively. Not the last wo ...Read More »
