2003 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (375ml)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Always one of the better values and ageworthy wines from the Haut-Medoc, Lanessan’s 2003 possesses lots of cedarwood, creme de cassis and forest floor notes, outstanding ripeness, low acidity, and a round, generous mouthfeel with no desiccation or flaws. (RP)" (8/2014) Spirit Journal: "Dense crimson. Delicate scent. Complete if not exactly subtle. A bit brutal with lots of acidity. And those dry tannins, and some rasping greenness on the end. (15/20 points)" (10/2010) Wine Spectator: "Aromas of plum, spices and cherry follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with stewed fruit and a light fi ...Read More »

2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml) Top Pick!
2010 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375 ml)

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 »

2014 Coutet, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

96-98 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. Aromatic with the a note of wildflower honey, the palate brings white fruit flavors and rich botrytis power. 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.

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.

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.

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.

2013 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

93-96 points Antonio Galloni: "A model of total grace and understatement, the 2013 Doisy-Daëne is drop-dead-gorgeous. Freshly cut white flowers, mint, sweet spices, pears and lychee all meld together in the glass in an effortless, gracious wine. The soft, intensely floral, crystalline finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. The 2013 Doisy-Daëne impresses for its superb drinkability. If I was going to buy only one moderately-priced Sauternes in 2013, Doisy-Daëne would be it." (4/2014) 93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Albeit youthfully raw, this is stunning already, with gorgeous, creamed Jonagold apple, mel ...Read More »

2013 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Barrel Sample. This wine is rich and full while still having a tight structure. It shows a fine streak of acidity that shoots through the honey and gingered marmalade flavors. A fine wine with potential." (3/2014) 92-95 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe, unctuous, rounded style, with lots of orange cream, almond, heather and ginger notes backed by hazelnut and tangerine. Long, powerful finish should really stretch out. (Web-2014)" 91-94 points Antonio Galloni: "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, gent ...Read More »

2001 de Malle, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Golden-colored, with extreme aromas of honey, candied lemons and mandarin oranges. Full-bodied, very sweet and concentrated. It goes on and on. Thick and rich. Loads of spicy, almost hot botrytis character. Best after 2010." (9/2004)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous effort, the 2001 De Malle is closed aromatically, but it exhibits tremendous palate penetration, deep, full-bodied flavors, great acidity for balance, and marvelous notes of lavender, honey, pineapple, creme brulee, and spice. This is a sensationally textured, long, medium gold-colored, moderately sweet 2001. Give i ...Read More »

2013 Climens, Barsac (375ml) (Pre-Arrival)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Cropped at ten hectoliters per hectare, this represents the first certified organic Chateau Climens. As usual, I have to conjecture how the final blend will manifest itself, a task becoming easier now that I have tasted through individual lots for several years. 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. I noticed a "marine" influence on the final tries picked on October 21 and 23, although here there is a slight attenuation ...Read More »

1986 Rieussec, Sauternes (375ml)

91 points Robert Parker: "This is a stunningly complex and elegant wine, but it is less muscular as well as less fat than either the 1983 or 1989. There are plenty of smoky almonds, peaches, and honeyed apricot fruit in the nose and flavors. In the mouth, the wine has a certain elegance ... a compelling Sauternes that should age magnificently. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010." (Bordeaux Book, 1998) 89 points Wine Spectator: "Quite exotic and intense toasted coconut, honey and vanilla flavors, but the fruit seems buried by new oak character and it tastes a... Read More »

2003 Myrat, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Incredible nose of honey, apple pie, toffee and spices. Intense. Layers of fruit. Full-bodied, thick and very sweet. Pure honey. Better than the 2001. Spread over buttered toast ... just joking. Best ever from here. Best after 2010." (3/2006) Jancis Robinson: "Mid gold. Rich and tangy - notable acidity but lots of botrytis too. Exciting. Creamy-textured with no shortage of sweetness but an attractively refreshing dry finish too. This is not the sweetest but is very well balanced and sophisticated with a certain nutty depth." (4/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow-gold. Exotic aromas of roast ...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 »

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 »
