1982 Suduiraut, Sauternes

4 stars Michael Broadbent (Nov 1992): "Roasted grapes picked exceptionally early, 16 September. Alcohol 14%. First tasted in 1988: sweet, hefty; minty, spicy; good length and acidity. More recently: waxy yellow; rich bouquet; very sweet, full-bodied. Showing well." This wine is actually better than the heralded 1983 vintage because Suduiraut makes better wines when they pick early in the season.

2001 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes

97 points Wine Spectator: "**Highly Recommended** 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 ora ...Read More »

1978 Suduiraut, Sauternes (soiled labels)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A down-scaled version of the 1979, the 1978 is elegant, less sweet, and significantly less rich, with medium body, fairly light texture for a Suduiraut, and good acidity. (RP)" (1/1998)

1983 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This looks to be a good Suduiraut. A medium golden color, with a very honeyed, rich, floral bouquet... Sweet, with fine honeyed flavors, this is an elegant, graceful Suduiraut with plenty of character. However, given the vintage, I had expected even more. (RP)" (1/1998) Wine Spectator: "Delicious and balanced, showing exciting earthy, white truffle flavors that add complexity to the honey and spice notes. Medium intensity. Drink now or hold until 2000" (4/1995)

1959 Suduiraut, Sauternes

93 points Wine Spectator: "No tasting note given." (11/1988) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "In tasting notes, I've alluded to the great 1959 Suduiraut produced. I have consistently rated this wine between 92 and 94 on the occasion I have tasted it (most recently 12/89)." K&L Notes: Five stars from critic Michael Broadben in his book Vintage Wine: "Over a dozen admiring notes: 'classic,' 'heavyweight,' fat, rich and lovely in the 1971s. Warm amber gold; fabulously rich ripe bouquet and flavour, fragrant, perfection in the 1980s. At the Dickinsons' in Miami (1997): floral, orange blossom, creamy bouquet; sweet but not as fulsom...

2003 & 2007 Climens, Barsac Tasting Lot
Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2003 & 2007 Climens, Barsac Tasting Lot, including 1-bottle of 2003 Climens, Barsac (97RP, 96WS, 92ST) and 1-bottle of 2007 Climens, Barsac (98RP, 98WE, 94ST, 93WS). Of the 2007 Climens, Barsac,Robert Parker's Wine Advocate writes: "Tasted single blind against its peers. Chateau Climens always tends to go into its shell after bottling, which is probably why I was not dishing out an even higher score to this still, spellbinding Barsac. The 2007 is endowed with a lovely bouquet: very pure with honey, a touch of orange-blossom and a touch of quince. The palate is very well-balanced with great purity and a dash of spice as well as a lovely viscous, botrytis-laden finish that possesses awesome weight and persistency. This is a slice of heaven in a glass, but it definitely needs time to reveal its true potential. (NM)" (02/2012) 

This lot contains the following items:
2003 Climens, Barsac (qty: 1)

1988 d'Yquem, Sauternes

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 d’Yquem has an incredibly profound nose of orange marmalade, dried apricots, honeycomb, musk and dried pineapple with hints of marzipan and crystallized ginger. The palate is seamless with a great line of crisp acid cutting through the densely packed dried tropical fruit and honeyed flavour layers. The finish just goes on and on. (LPB)." (9/2012)96 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of of beeswax, botrytis spice and honey, with hints of toffee. Full-bodied, very sweet, thick and layered. Caramel, toffee, spice. Molasses too. Very, very powerful. Muscular and rich. Fabulous Saute ...Read More »

1989 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (375ml) (Previously $80.00)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Intense and exotic; ripe and rich botrytis flavors explode on the palate to a long finish. Very sweet and full in body, it packs in the spice, white pepper, cream, coffee, quince and dried apricot notes. –" (4/1995)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A mature, amber hue. A delicate nose of orange peel, honey, marmalade and almonds. The palate is well balanced with good acidity, notes of tangy marmalade, apple, orange zest and a sprinkling of coconut. This has a nice roundness to it, the oak well-integrated and good cohesion towards the finish. Very fine indeed and drinking perfectly nose. T ...Read More »

1986 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A fabulous, exotic blockbuster of great balance and harmony, tasting of orange slices and chocolate, honey and cream, leading to an intense finish. Tempting now but built for aging." (04/95) 92 points Robert Parker: "Wealthy collectors will have a great deal of fun comparing the 1986, 1988, and 1989 as they evolve over the years. The 1986 was the finest Guiraud made up to that point. I believe it to be a worthy rival of the great 1988 ... the 1986 is a super concentrated, aromatic wine with gobs of botrytis, and creamy, unctu... Read More »

2014 Larrivet-Haut-Brion Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Spice, fruit and a rich texture combine to give this wine a wonderful balance and style. As it develops, it is going to have moderate weight and serious intensity." (3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and very enticing, with lots of shortbread, salted butter, heather and yellow apple fruit flavors that have yet to knit fully, but are stretching out impressively on the lengthy, macadamia nut-accented finish. This white has been sneakily good recently. (Web-2015)" 89-92 points Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Larrivet-Haut-Brion Blanc is built on texture and richness, with considerable new French oak in ...Read More »

1983 Doisy Daene, Barsac

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Doisy-Daene finished its harvest 1 month after d’Yquem, and has possibly produced this property's finest wine in over two decades. A big, ripe bouquet of pineapples, peaches, and spring flowers is very attractive. On the palate, the wine is concentrated, full bodied, and unctuous, without being too heavy or alcoholic. Excellent acidity suggests a long, eventful evolution. (RP)" (3/1990) Wine Spectator: "A pleasant drink and there's even some complexity, but it's not cuddly. Light gold, waxy and sulfury on the nose, sugary sweet, oak, honey, pear, apricot on the palate. ...Read More »

1967 d'Yquem, Sauternes

100 points Wine Spectator: "From one of the 20th century's celebrated vintages for Yquem, this bottle stands up to all the hype--unforgettable for its purity, elegance, harmony, its "total" everything. Powerful, yet it seems weightless on the palate, almost defying gravity as it tangos around with its vanilla, peach and apricot flavors. Seamless, nearly endless finish. Easy to understand its reputation as the greatest Yquem of the last 35 years.--Yquem vertical. Drink now through 2018." (5/1999)96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Based solely on the strength of what is unquestionably a great Yquem, many have concluded ...Read More »

1981 Climens, Barsac

Jancis Robinson: "Half bottle. Neutral nose. Lots of creamy sweetness. A good bottle! Barsac freshness. Some astringency on the finish. Just drying out a teensy bit on the finish. But good length. A good vintage for Sauternes. 18/20 points." (10/2010)
