1989 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

92 points Wine Spectator: "Exotically perfumed violet and rose petals burst on your palate, accompanied by dried apricot, lemon and honey flavors. Gorgeous and subtle, glowing on the finish." (4/1995) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vibrant aromas of fruit salad and honey. Moderately viscous and bright in the mouth; not nearly as powerful as the '90. Nicely balanced, even if there still a bit of acidity to be absorbed. Intensely flavored and youthful. (ST)" (7/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Luminous copper. Full and round and very opulent. Round and full and clean and open on the nose. Though not desperately subtle. More almonds on the nose ...Read More »

Barrel sample still." (2/2014) 96 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with ginger, yellow apple chutney, dried pineapple and papaya flavors coursing through a finish that brims with singed almond and lemon chiffon flavors. This retains a touch of youthful rawness, featuring a bitter orange note that's yet to be absorbed. No need to rush or worry here. Best from 2018 through 2040.

2016 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

2004 Nairac, Barsac (Previously $30)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Clean, ripe and pure on the nose, with stone fruit and citrus aromas complicated by minerals, clove and vanillin oak. At once fresh and ripe in the mouth, with intense flavors of apricot nectar and orange. Finishes ripe and long, with a strong spice character to the fruit flavors, and firm spine. Very promising." (7/2006) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Chateau Nairac is closed and reticent on the nose with light pineapple and citrus peel scents.

2007 Coutet, Sauternes

2016 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Doisy Daene has a generous bouquet with lovely scents of yellow flower and peach infusing the honeyed aromas. The palate is fresh on the entry with tangy orange peel and peachy notes, very harmonious and viscous in texture, leading to a detailed and persistent finish that is one of the most delicious I can remember from this Barsac estate. This wine will always be tinged with sadness, since it coincides with the passing of Denis Dubourdieu. But his legacy will live on in his wines, including this one, which is magnificent.

1982 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

4 stars Michael Broadbent: "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. (Nov 1992)

2014 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Doisy-Daëne 2014 is bestowed with 144 grams per liter residual sugar and a pH of 3.7. 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 palate is very well balanced with superb tension and fruit intensity on the entry. It is more linear than recent vintages, minerally with a lovely twist of sour lemon imparting tension and vivacity on the crystalline finish. This is a fabulo ...Read More »

(4/1995) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. The ’89 is a little lighter in hue compared to the Suduiraut ’90. The nose offers caramelized pear, frangipane, yellow flowers and a touch of quince, moderate vigour at first, but opening nicely with aeration.

97 points Wine Spectator: "This delivers wave after wave of piecrust, dried pineapple, warm marmalade, singed almond, glazed peach and apricot flavors, with a hint of brioche. Despite the heft, this has a breezy feel within, thanks to riveting acidity buried deep on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM)" (3/2017) 96 points Decanter: "One extremely fine lot after another, all marked by an extremely pure lemony botrytis. Bright and crisp, with lovely sweetness and mindboggling precision.

2013 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (Previously $35)

A fine wine with potential. (RV)" (3/2014) 91-94 points Vinous: "An exotic, beguiling wine, the 2013 Doisy-Védrines lifts from the glass with expressive floral notes, white stone fruits, peach and apricots. The 2013 is soft, gentle and very nicely layered, conveying an impression of total elegance and finesse.

Full-bodied, very sweet, with a green apple and honey character; petrol character comes through on the finish. Better with age. Best after 2005. (JS)" (5/2000)

2007 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer: "Pungent botrytized aromas of apricot, pineapple, orange zest and licorice, lifted by floral high tones. Dense, spicy and thick on the palate, offering superb purity of fruit framed and lifted by ineffable spicy and minty high tones. Not a particularly fat or powerful style; in fact, the perfectly integrated acidity gives shape to the middle palate and extends the finish, which displays late botrytis notes of barley sugar and honey.

(RV)" (4/2017) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Doisy-Védrines is precise, understated and gracious. Candied orange peel, crème brulee, wild flowers, passion fruit and tangerine are all delineated nicely. The 2016 is deep and resonant on the palate, yet it also retains quite a bit of brightness.

2013 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes (375ml)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Rayne-Vigneau, picked from September 21 until October 30 over four tries, is being blended from 28 lots and sees 40% new oak. It is still showing quite conspicuous oak on the nose, although there is clearly sufficient honeyed fruit to support it. With continued aeration, it reveals attractive but subtle almond and spice scents. The palate is well-balanced with a lively honeyed entry. This is already very cohesive, with fine delineation, and the finish is very composed, with a saltiness lingering on the aftertaste. It is a classic Rayne-Vigneau t ...Read More »

Great finish. This wine has a great future. Better in 2021 but already great." (2/2016) 94-96 points Vinous: "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.

The remarkable amount of painstaking labor necessary to produce the nectar known as Yquem is almost impossible to comprehend. This is a fascinating effort. With greater evidence of botrytis than the colossal 1983, but less power and alcohol, the 1986 Yquem tastes reminiscent of the 1975, only more precocious, as well as more concentrated.

2001 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

93 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of lemon curd and vanilla character, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, sweet and very fresh, with a spicy, honey aftertaste. A beautifully balanced Sauternes. Spicy and chunky on the finish. Best after 2008. (JS)" (9/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Exotic, expressive aromas of apricot, honey, white raisin and caramel. Superripe and moderately thick but with sound acids giving it excellent balance. Flavors of toffee, caramel, honey, grilled nuts and spicy oak. The very long finish features a superripe suggestion of marzipan but also lovely limey lift. (ST) ...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 »

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 »

2001 Rieussec, Sauternes Back In Stock!
2001 Rieussec, Sauternes

100 points James Suckling: "This is a crazy wine! It’s sweet, but not sugary. Mushrooms, furniture wax, spices then dried oranges, lemons, pineapples, and just a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied, with great density and power, yet balanced and refined. So amazing, but give this five to six years still. Pull the cork in 2016. 145 grams RS." (5/2012) 100 points Wine Spectator: "*Wine of the Year 2004* Like lemon curd on the nose, turning to honey and caramel. Full-bodied and very sweet, with fantastic concentration of ripe and botrytized fruit, yet balanced and refined. Electric acidity. Lasts for minutes on the palat ...Read More »

2015 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "A phenomenal white with dried fruits such as apricots and mangos. Masses of bortrytis spice. Full body yet agile and bright with incredible lightness and delicacy. So much cherry blossom too. Small white flowers. Medium sweet. Ginger. Great finish." (4/2016) 95-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Suduiraut comes with 123 grams per liter of residual sugar, more modest than some of its Sauternes peers and 4.56 grams per liter of acidity. It has a sense of completeness on the nose already: immense clarity with wild honey and quince aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is me ...Read More »
