93 points Vinous: "The 1975 Climens is one of the finest releases of the decade. It has a wonderful bouquet with shimmering citrus fruit commingling with wild honey, orange blossom and soupçon of old antique furniture. Blossoms in the glass! The palate is fresh and vibrant with a killer line of acidity. This is still fresh and tense with notes of marmalade and grapefruit, mandarin, orange rind and allspice. This is a powerful Climens, though the 1976 has the edge. (NM)" (08/2022) Jancis Robinson: "Deep gold with the first signs of amber. More oily on t...

It blossoms in the glass. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a killer line of acidity. This is still fresh and tense with marmalade, grapefruit, mandarin, bitter orange and brown spices. It feels long and tender in the mouth: quite a powerful Climens at its peak. (NM)" (06/2015) Jancis Robinson: "High-botrytis vintage, low yields (7.2 hl/ha). TA 4.5 g/l (sulphuric), RS 98 g/l. D...

1988 Rieussec, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
95 points Wine Advocate: "Tasted in Sauternes with Charles Chevalier, the 1988 Rieussec is a vintage that Chevalier himself claimed to be his favorite. I can understand why. It has an unerringly youthful bouquet with vibrant citrus fruit, wild honey, mandarin and mineral scents, a bouquet that seems to have electricity flowing through it. The same can be said for the palate that is full of tension and vigor, almost clinical in terms of focus with alluring viscosity and wonderful length. This bowled me over with its charm and breeding.

1959 d'Yquem, Sauternes (high shoulder, soiled label)
Top Pick!
97 points John Gilman: " The 1959 Yquem is a great vintage and the wine is at its absolute zenith at the present time and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. The utterly profound bouquet soars from the glass in a blaze of oranges, white cherries, honeyed nuts, crème brulée, new leather, great minerality, barley sugar and gentle topnotes of candied orange peel. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and very, very refined, with a rock solid core, impeccable balance, laser-like focus and simply stunning acidity for a nearly fifty year-o...

In 1855, château Romer du Hayot was awarded the rank of second cru classé, not long after the Hayot family took over the property in 1851. The du Hayot family is proud that their ownership of the estate predates the origin of Sauternes wines which were initially produced in the mid-19th century. The fifth generation, Catherine Boyer du Hayot carries on the family tradition, as the estate continues to craft wines of the finest quality.

98 points Decanter: "This is exuberant, concentrated and luscious. Full of blood orange, nectarine, saffron, touches of carmalised ginger, truffle and crème brûlée. A seesaw of zesty acidity and luscious sweetness, this is a beautiful wine that still has decades ahead of it. Owned by the Lur Saluces family at the time, this clearly shows why Yquem stands in its own category in the appellation. (JA)" (04/2021) 98 points Wine Advocate: "A warm to hot vintage ideal for producing outstanding reds does not necessarily make for a great Sauternes vintage, but...

90 points Wine Advocate: "Somewhat less evolved than the 1971, and for me always a shade less interesting and complex, the 1970 Yquem is a large-scaled, rich, full-bodied, fairly alcoholic Yquem with significant flavor interest as well as crisp acidity. Unlike the 1971, which is close to peak maturity, this wine has a long way to go and is impressive, but not yet revealing all of its potential. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025. (RP)" (01/1998) Jancis Robinson: "Rich and very sweet with more than a hint of orange peel." (01/2012)

2001 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Top Pick!
100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A brilliant sweet wine that tops out on my scale, the 2001 Château D'Yquem is now fully mature yet still vibrant and pure, with an incredible nose of honeyed marmalade, caramelized tropical fruits, rising bread, marzipan, and lavender. Incredibly complex, full-bodied, and unctuous on the palate, it's one of those rare wines that can deliver incredible richness and decadence while staying pure, light on its feet, and perfectly balanced. A wine that every wine lover should taste once in their life, it should be just about immortal....

99 points Wine Spectator: "A lovely, creamy, tropical style, with mango, papaya and guava notes lending a caressing feel, while singed almond and warm piecrust accents blossom through the lush finish. Just when you think that's all there is, toasted coconut, fig, orange blossom and persimmon details kick in, lending length and dimension. The finish is ridiculously long. Best from 2020 through 2060. (JM)" (03/2014) 98 points Int'l Wine Cellar: "Luminous golden yellow. Cool, pure aromas of white peach, honeyed mango, guava nectar, white flowers and saffr...

98 points Decanter: "Befitting a glorious Sauternes vintage, the 2007 Yquem stood out in this tasting like a beacon. Sandrine Garbay notes that it was ‘a great year for noble rot and feels that, like 2001, 2007 is a “classic” expression of Yquem.’ Burnished hue in the glass, remarkably powerful and concentrated with endless layers of flavour. Aged in oak for 2.5 years, remarkably this could still benefit from further ageing and integration of oak. Despite the power and weight, the wine remains fresh and vibrant with driving acidity. Should improve for a ...

From a legendary vintage in Bordeaux, this fully mature stickie is the color of liquid gold, and as sweet as fresh honey. For several generations, Château Rieussec has been a leading name in Sauternes wines. As early as 1868, Charles Cocks remarked that "Beyond any of the others, Rieussec produces wines that are very similar to Yquem wines."

94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is packed with dry botrytis flavor, but also a bright freshness. Together they give an obviously sweet wine good structure as well as ripeness. The tension between the fruit and the mineral texture will allow this wine to age for many years. (RV)" (04/2016) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Intense, with candied lemon peel, glazed yellow apple and honey notes streaming through, picking up mirabelle plum and papaya accents through the finish, which is carried by a buried racy streak.

It has 148 grams per liter of residual sugar, making for a relatively rich style and the sweetest Yquem since 2017. Pale lemon-gold colored, perfumed notes of orange peel, juicy peaches, grapefruit, and honeycomb slowly emerge from the glass, followed by suggestions of jasmine tea, fresh ginger, and lime blossoms. The palate is fantastically satiny, with great tension and loads of spicy sparks complementing the citrusy flavors, finishing with epic lengt...

Long, with a vanilla-coconut tart finish. What a wine, voluptuous, sexy, and luscious. " (12/2011) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Squarely on the tropical side of the spectrum, with mango, papaya and pineapple fruit laced with a marmalade note.

New!
98-100 points Vinous: "The 2023 Suduiraut (100% Sémillon) is a real stunner. Light on its feet yet wonderfully deep, the 2023 offers up a heady mix of tangerine oil, mint, white flowers, apricot and passion fruit. Readers will find a Sauternes that is more finesse than power. (AG)" (04/2024) 97-99 points The Wine Independent: "Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2023 Suduiraut swans out of the glass with flamboyant notes of candied orange peel, lemon meringue pie, lime cordial, and beeswax, followed by hints of preserved ginger, allspice, and white truffle. ...

2021 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)

98 points Jane Anson: "A great example of this always-arresting dry white, with a ton of soft apple blossom aromatics, before drawing inwards to show scraping acidity, powerful white peach, quince, apricot and citrus flavours with a twist of lime juice, fennel and a salty tang of oyster shell and salted crackers. Has the richness, complexity and concentration that you find in Yquem, and although it won't have quite the same longevity, there is no issue with keeping this wine for 15 to 20 years. 7g/l of residual sugar, mainly from the Sémillon that is pic...

93 points Decanter: "Showing extra maturation with a deeper colour in the glass, this is an elegant and precise Yquem which doesn’t have the concentration of the greatest vintages but is still classically structured with notable acidity and grip on the palate. Lacks a bit of complexity compared to some of the other wines tasted, but still a fine Sauternes which is at its peak now, but will keep for at least another decade too.

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1959 d'Yquem, Sauternes (97JG, 97RP, 97VN, 97WS). Vinous: "The 1959 Yquem came directly from the property and is the best bottle I had up to that point. Apricot, marmalade and quince adorn the beautifully defined nose that is almost Barsac-like in quality. The palate is built around intense marmalade-tinged honeyed fruit and a razor-sharp acidity that effortlessly slices through it. This is imbued with wonderful tension - gorgeous crème brûlée, marmalade and quince towards the pixelated finish. (NM)" (11/2020)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1970 Suduiraut, Sauternes (93JG, 90VN). John Gilman: "The 1970 Château Suduiraut is another lovely example of this fine Sauternes vintage, offering up a deep and fully mature bouquet of apricot, tangerine, leather, crème brulée, a fine base of chalky soil and a topnote of honey. On the palate the wine is deep, full and focused, with a lovely core, fine balance and grip and a long, vibrant and bouncy finish. This is really a lovely vintage of Suduiraut that is presently at its apogee of peak maturity." (01/2018)

Bid on this 3-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 2001 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (96RP, 95DC, 94VN, 93WS, 92ST), 1-bottle of 2001 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes (96JS, 96RP, 95WS, 93ST, 91DC, 91VN), and 1-bottle of 2001 Raymond Lafon, Sauternes (94WS, 93JG, 93RP, 93VN). Of the 2001 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes, Wine Advocate writes: "The La Tour Blanche 2001 has long been the “insiders’ Sauternes” for the vintage. 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. The palate is extremely well balanced with fine acidity effortlessly slicing a swathe through that unctuous, honeyed fruit. There are also understated marmalade notes with a suggestion of crème brûlée furnishing the weighty finish that goes on and on. Just don’t tell anyone how good this La Tour Blanche is...promise?

Wine Enthusiast: The beautifully aromatic, honeyed scent leads into flavors of bitter orange and honey, along with extreme freshness. Notes of white peach and Rocha pear give richness to a wine that is not huge, but wonderfully balanced. (RV) (04/2014)

Bid on this 12-500 ml bottle lot of 2004 Ginestet Mascaron Par Ginestet Sauternes (500ml) in original wood. Wine Enthusiast: This full-bodied wine, an equal blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc, is fat and oily in texture. There is some wood, giving vanilla flavors along with kiwis and ripe pears. The acidity at the end gives it some shape. (RV) (12/2006)

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 1996 d'Yquem, Sauternes (96WS, 95RP). Wine Spectator: "This leans toward the tropical side, with mango and guava notes out front, while maple, date, blood orange and citrus oil flavors fill in behind. The finish kicks into another gear, taking off with honeysuckle, orange blossom and frangipane accents. Has almost unbridled power today, while maintaining serious cut.

Bid on this 2-half-bottle lot of 1988 Doisy-Védrines, Barsac (375ml) (90WS). Wine Spectator: Nutty, with dried apricot and pineapple, a hint of caramel.

Bid on this 6-half-bottle lot of 2009 Sigalas Rabaud, Sauternes (375ml) (OWC - (95-97RP), (94-96WE), 92WS, 90ST) in original wood. Wine Advocate: The Sigalas-Rabaud has a well defined nose: grapefruit, nectarine, honey and lime, much more primal than some of the other 2009s. The palate is very well balanced with excellent acidity: apricot, honeysuckle, a touch of orange zest and then vibrant white peach bursting across the finish with lime flower and lemongrass on the aftertaste. Wonderful persistency, power and freshness. Without question: the 2009 is the best Sigalas-Rabaud that I have tasted and this nectar comes highly recommended. (04/2010)
Current Bid: $130.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1976 Rieussec, Sauternes (90RP). Wine Advocate: "This is one of the most controversial vintages of Rieussec. Very dark gold in color, some observers have said it is oxidized and is falling apart. Despite the dark color, the remarkable taste seems to suggest that this wine has a way to go. The huge nose of toasted almonds, caramel, chocolate, and brown sugar does exhibit a trace of volatile acidity, so technocrats are likely to be turned off. Incredibly rich and full bodied, with a honeyed, luscious texture and extremely intense flavors, this exotic, hugely proportioned wine (15% alcohol) can only be served as a dessert. The yield at Rieussec in 1976 was 2.5 hectoliters per hectare, which is approximately one third of a glass of wine per vine. This is a bold, rather overblown style of Sauternes, but I love it.

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. (07/2013)

Bid on this 4-half-bottle lot of 2005 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (97RP, 97WE, 97WS, 95JS, 94DC). Wine Advocate: The pale to medium lemon-gold colored 2005 d'Yquem opens with a provocative, mineral and earth-tinged nose of chalk dust, wet pebbles and dried wild mushrooms over a core of warm apricots, green mango, honeyed toast, ginger and pink grapefruit plus wafts of honeycomb, orange blossoms and saffron. The palate confirms the wine is still a little closed and shut down, offering achingly gorgeous glimpses at the tightly wound, intricate layers structured with a racy acid line and wonderfully creamy texture, finishing incredibly long and perfumed. This decadent flavor bomb still needs a good five to seven years in bottle before it is set to go off, but oh what a spectacle it will give then! (LPB) (08/2019)

Bid on this 2-half-bottle lot of 1989 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (100JA, 99RP, 99VN). Jane Anson: What a brilliant example of why Sauternes should be left to gather nuance and to shed its more exuberant, fattier early years before opening. This is just a masterclass in the layers and complexity that you find in fully mature Yquem; saffron, truffle, pineapple, quince, lime, apricots and lemon. Hugely persistent with a squeeze of scraping slate acidity through the final few minutes that gives a dry but mouthwatering finish. It is clearly in its tertiary phase in terms of the type of aromatics, and the beautiful amber, rose-gold colour, but there is no sense that it is beginning to run out of steam. A concentrated, gloriously balanced Yquem that has decades ahead of it, and fully justifies the reputation of the vintage. Count Alexandre Lur Saluces was heading up the estate at the time. (01/2021)

Int'l Wine Review: The 2005 Château Climens is an absolutely stunning showing, which at this juncture is not showing any noticeable flaws, as it dazzles with its striking aromas and flavors. Unctuous, intense, and simply gorgeous, this perfumed wine has sublime aromatics of quince, crème brûlée, bananas foster, candied mango and baking spices. On the palate the wine possesses profound flavors of crème brûlée, roasted pineapple, ripe mango, and sweet marcona almond purée all adding to the magnificent flavor profile. Seductive, complete and utterly brilliant, the 2005 is clearly is one of the finest wines I have tasted from Climens, and it has the structure, weight and intensity to cellar for another 40 years.
