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." (7/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not to drink it now. *#4 on Top 100 of 2008, Highly Recommended* ...Read More »

2005 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (375ml)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Extravagantly rich, this is dense and supersweet initially, just balanced with acidity. The botrytis dryness is really not here at this stage, but with its elegant creamy texture, wood flavors still very present. This is still at the very beginning of its development. (RV)" (6/2008) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château La Tour Blanche has a complex nose with lemon sherbet, orange sorbet, honey and jasmine all soaring from the glass without a care in the world. The palate is medium-bodied with refined tannin, very focused an ...Read More »

2005 Rieussec, Sauternes

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind against the Rieussec 2001 as a comparison, the Château Rieussec 2005 has a more airy bouquet at first and here I find more mineralité on the nose, more precision and focus that the Rieussec 2001. The palate is clean and fresh with vibrant acidity, real tension here with marmalade, lemon curd, apricot and cold stone. Wonderful acidity is interwoven throughout this Sauternes that demonstrates real race and sophistication. It is not as rich or as hedonistic as the Rieussec 2001, but I think the slightly better wine. More breeding and energy. Do ...Read More »

Bid on this bottle of 2005 Rieussec, Sauternes (96RP, 96WS, 94WE, 93JS, 93ST). Wine Spectator: "Shows enticing aromas of toffee, cream, dried apricot and caramel.

2005 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense aromas of honey, dried pineapple and botrytis spice. Full-bodied, very sweet and very powerful, with loads of dried fruit and sweetness on the finish. Lots of clove and orange peel. Same quality as the 2001." (3/2008) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Védrines has a rich and decadent bouquet, very honeyed and forward, perhaps missing the precision of the Doisy-Daëne. The palate is rich and powerful with notes of honey, tangerine and marmalade. The finish feels unctuous in the layered in the mouth – a typica ...Read More »

2005 Suduiraut, Sauternes

97 points James Suckling: "What a wine for the vintage, with spices and furniture wax undertones, then dried citrus fruit. Great intensity in this, powerful stuff. Perhaps the best 2005." (3/2013) 96 points Wine & Spirits: "Bright gold. Perfectly balanced. Not sweet, and yet explosively sweet with flavors of fresh nectarine, scents of jasmine and honeysuckle. The sweetness pours out of the freshness, so it's impossible to taste them apart. The flavors last, perhaps because it's the kind of wine you'll want to roll around in your mouth over and over. Glorious." (10/2008) 95 points Connoisseurs Guide: "**Three Stars** Ooh la la. From the gener ...Read More »

2005 Rabaud-Promis, Sauternes (375ml)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Spicy peach, honey, marzipan and vanilla on the rather suave nose. Then ripe and creamy in the middle palate but with very good definition to its flavors of stone fruits and sexy oak spice. Finishes quite long and pure, with noteworthy clarity and grip." (7/2008) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Honey, apple pie, dried pineapple and acacia aromas follow through to a full body, with medium sweetness and a spicy, viscous finish. Best after 2010. 5,000 cases made. (JS)" (3/2008) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Rabaud-Promis has a light ...Read More »

2005 Climens, Barsac

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Climens just soars from the glass with layers of clear honey, marmalade, nectarine and minerals all beautifully carved. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, vibrant honeyed fruit that builds and builds in the mouth in tandem with a killer line of acidity. Even though it is a convincing, great Climens, you also have the impression that it is only just beginning to show what it is capable of. Bérénice Lurton and her team excelled in this vintage and it comes strongly recommended. (NM) ...Read More »

2005 Lafaurie Peyraguey, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There's beautiful ripe fruit in this, with pineapple, mango and papaya and hints of vanilla and honey. Full-bodied and medium sweet. Rich and round, with loads of cooked apple, citrus peel and spices. Long and flavorful. Dense and rich. Best after 2012.
