2005 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Elsewhere $35)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Surprisingly dry, this has richness rather than sweetness, and intense, powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed, along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine." (6/2008)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "92+ points. (no tasting note given)" (4/2008)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright golden yellow. Cool, pungent nose offers hints of orange, marzipan, sexy brown spices, parsley, grass and eucalpytus. Sweet, thick and powerful but with its fat fruit flavors cut by strong acidity. At once densely packed and vibrant, finishing with superb lingering sweetness and a mineral element. This needs pat ...Read More »

2001 Guiraud, Sauternes Top Pick!
2001 Guiraud, Sauternes

96 points Wine Spectator: "*#23 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. Best after 2008."

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.

1989 Guiraud, Sauternes

98 points James Suckling: "Aged Sauternes is phenomenal. It's dark gold with a bright gold edge. Full and very intense with layers of dried apricots and orange peel. Tropical fruit too. This continues to open on the palate and become more young. Crazy intensity and sensuality. Superb now." (10/2014)92 points Wine Spectator: "This full-bodied Sauternes stretches the limits of botrytis. Offers loads of beeswax, almost moldy aromas, yet it is fresh and zingy with plenty of honey, spice, toast and lemon flavors." (4/1995)

It possesses moderate sweetness, terrific aromatics, and a full-bodied, rich, beautifully delineated, ethereal palate revealing delicacy as well as acidity. Although young, it is already strutting its stuff. Consume it over the next 15-25 years."

With terrific acidity, abundant botrytis, and a long, full-throttle finish, this spectacular effort will drink well between 2007-2020.

2004 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

What's left is ethereal: scents of the forest, of beeswax, ginger and Mandarin orange marmalade, a range of honeyed flavors that never seems to stop. A reset for your taste receptors, this is mood-altering wine. Absolutely lovely." (10/2007)94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Like so many vintages of Suduiraut, this wine shows richness, even in the relatively delicate 2004.

1997 d'Yquem, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate.

In the mouth, notions of peaches, lychees, and caramelized citrus give way to a weighty, full-bodied, concentrated yet incredibly precise and well-delineated sweet white. It is a tour de force in Sauternes! Anticipated maturity: 2009-2035." (6/2004)93 points Wine Spectator: "Very intense aromas of candied lemons, fresh flowers and vanilla.

Leave the Yquem ’01 for the millionaires: load up on one of the finest recent vintages from the estate. It has a potent honeyed, frangipane and white flower-scented bouquet with subtle nougat scents in the background lending it an exotic edge.

A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass.

It does not reveal the compelling finesse and complexity of the 1988 or 1986, but it is a far heavier, richer wine than either of those vintages.

This small estate abuts Yquem's vineyard and has an excellent reputation. …Unfortunately, the wine is extremely difficult to find because of the tiny production (1,300 cases) and the fact that the proprietor Pierre Meslier sells much of it to private clients in Europe."

1996 Suduiraut, Sauternes

89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Slight SO2 and a whiff of licorice on the nose. Fat, oaky and moderately thick; fairly sweet but doesn't offer the shape or depth of flavor of the '97. The finish, though, is ripe, honeyed and long." (8/1999) Jancis Robinson: "Bright gold. Pretty simple on the nose. Very big and barley sugar on the palate. You couldn’t fail to like this even if it not one of the subtlest. Chewy end. (17/20 points JR)" (6/2011) K&L Notes: Pineapple aromas and up-front fruit on the palate. Very honeyed and rich. A powerhouse.

2001 Suduiraut, Sauternes

98 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #9 on the Top 100 Wines of 2004* Gorgeous aromas of honey, passion fruit, mango and candied lemon rind. Full-bodied and ultraconcentrated, yet balanced and refined. It lasts for minutes on the palate. This has just about everything in the right place. Stunning. Best after 2009." (9/2004)95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Flamboyantly ripe, complex nose combines pineapple, apricot, toffee, clove and vanilla. Hugely sweet and rich, with deep, powerful flavors of honey, marzipan and toffee. A major mouthful of wine, with great lingering sweetness. Today, this makes ...Read More »

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)

2003 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

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. Best after 2010." (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 ...Read More »

2003 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

98 points James Suckling: "This is big and powerful with a dense and very sweet palate. Full of botrytis and spices, from cinnamon to cloves to nutmeg. The finish is nutty with more spices and orange peel. Very stunning. Why wait? This has a slight dried grape character from the hot vintage. 151 grams of RS." (5/2012) 92-95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Medium yellow-gold. Reticent but pure aromas of fruit salad, spices and vanilla, lifted by floral and mineral nuances. Wonderfully honeyed, fat fruit flavors are complemented by cinnamon, clove and nutmeg. The sexy oak treatment gives lift to the wine. A bit youthfully ...Read More »
