1999 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium gold in color, the 1999 d'Yquem has shed its puppy fat and transformed into compelling cinnamon toast, creme caramel and cashew notions with emerging notes of beurre blanc, honeycomb, ginger snaps and praline over a core of peach preserves and apple pie. The palate is softly spoken with a refreshing backbone carrying loads of delicate savory and stone fruit preserves nuances to a long, beautifully restrained finish. At the 20-year mark, this wine is in the midst of its ideal drinking window, and while I ha...

2018 d'Yquem, Sauternes 3-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 d'Yquem is all lime cordial, grapefruit oil and mandarin peel to begin. With a little coaxing, the fireworks really begin, letting off a whole array of honeysuckle, candied ginger, dried pineapple, lemon pastilles, chalk dust and sea spray scents, followed by a savory undercurrent of shaved almonds, allspice and baking bread. The palate is an exercise in polish and poise, featuring the most gorgeously creamy texture and bright, sparkling freshness, framing all the densely laden tropical and citrus fruit ...

97 points Decanter: "Average temperatures 2.7°C over average, combined with 20% of the normal rainfall from mid August to the end of July made makes this a naturally rich, low-yielding vintage (40% less than average, not helped by a hail storm in July), with a gloriously gourmet 145g/ha residual sugar, and a pH level of 3.95. As ever with Yquem, patience was the key, taking in the grapes slowly but surely over 17 days harvest that extended well into October. The results in the glass are intense and glossy, full of satin-textured apricot and white peach f...

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Following a very long harvest stretching nearly two months, the 2015 Château d'Yquem came in at 13.9% alcohol and 144 grams per liter of residual sugar, sporting a pH of 3.65 and six grams per liter of tartaric acid. None of these numbers, however, even remotely begin to tell you how profound this wine is. The nose opens with electric notes of ripe pineapples, green mango, orange blossoms and lemon tart with hints of fungi, lime zest, crushed rocks and jasmine. The freshness on the palate is just astonishing, pe...

2007 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium gold colored, the 2007 d'Yquem delivers powerful scents of tropical fruits—dried mangoes and pineapple paste—accented by acacia honey, toasted almonds and woodsmoke with hints of chalk dust, kettle corn and lime blossom. The palate reveals one of those vintages that shape-shifts into an apparently drier style than it is, largely thanks to its uber-racy backbone of freshness and layered mineral-inspired flavors, finishing with a regal, satin-textured savoriness. Difficult to resist now, this will be...

98-100 points John Gilman: "The most magical young vintage of this wine that I can ever recall tasting. Its beauty in ’09 lies in its haunting elegance and refined complexity at such an early age, which seems to me to be the barometer by which Yquem should be judged, as power is never an issue with this great terroir. The bouquet is absolutely fabulous, as it soars from the glass in an almost delicate mélange of fresh-cut pineapple, tangerine, an exotic touch of banana, acacia blossoms, a gloriously complex base of chalky soil, orange zest, delicate note...

2007 Climens, Barsac (1.5L)
New!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. Château 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 ...

Bid on this 1.5 liter 2-bottle lot of 2009 Doisy Vedrines, Sauternes (1.5L) (95VN, 94WS, 93RP, 92JS). Vinous: "The 2009 Doisy-Védrines has a gorgeous bouquet with passion fruit, quince, beeswax and light figgy aromas that are well defined and gain intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the pure botrytised fruit and leads to a gorgeous viscous finish. Olivier Castèja made a fabulous Barsac this year. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. (NM)" (03/2019)

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 1-bottle of 1988 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes (91RP, 90WS), 1-bottle of 1997 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml) (92RP), 1-bottle of 1999 Rayne Vigneau, Sauternes, and 1-bottle of 2001 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes (96RP, 93WS, 92ST). Of the 2001 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes,Robert Parker's 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. (NM)" (10/2014)
Starting Bid: $145.00

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 1950 Gilette "Crème-de-Tête," Sauternes. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Quite fat and sweet, with excellent ripeness, full body, and a long, deep, velvety finish, this wine is a revelation given its age. This is a big, heavyweight Sauternes that will last for 15-20 more years. Last tasted, 1/85." (01/1998)
Starting Bid: $450.00

Bid on this 375 ml 2-bottle lot of 1988 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (99RP, 96VN, 94WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Millionaires will have considerable fun comparing the evolution of the 1988 d'Yquem with the 1986. Both are super-rich, honeyed, botrytised wines. The 1988 exhibits a deeper color, as well as a more evolved, richer, and more complex bouquet. Aromas of melted butter, honeyed fruits, spicy nuts, and toasty new oak explode upward from the glass. The 1988 d'Yquem displays more richness and unctuosity than any young d'Yquem I have tasted. It should have 40-60 years of positive evolution, although one suspects that much of the production will be consumed within the next 4-5 years. If my instincts are correct, this is the most profound d'Yquem since the legendary 1959. It may not prove as timeless as the 1975, but I believe it to be even more concentrated. (RP)" (08/1993)
Starting Bid: $411.00

Bid on this 3-half-bottle lot of 1989 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (98VN, 97RP, 97ST, 97WS). Vinous: "The 1989 Yquem is probably the best and most consistent of the triumvirate at the end of the decade. Two bottles tasted at 30 years of age give me no reason to alter that opinion. Limpid gold in color, slightly lighter than the 1988, it has a vivacious bouquet of gorgeous orange blossom, tinned apricot, quince jelly and wild heather, all delivered with impressive clarity. The palate is cohesive, pure and exquisitely balanced, sporting just the right amount of viscosity (less than the 1990). It bursts with tangerine, white peach, saffron and fresh fig, flecks of Seville orange marmalade appearing on the finish. This is Yquem flirting with its very best, and you never know – it could get even better with age. Tasted at Hide restaurant in London. (NM)" (09/2019)
Starting Bid: $615.00

Bid on this 4-bottle lot of 1989 Suduiraut, Sauternes (90VN). Vinous: "The bouquet is quite vivacious with quince and frangipane, hints of pear and crème brûlée, certainly responding to aeration. The palate has similar weight and texture to the 1990 although, there is slightly more tension here with orange rind and marmalade imparting Barsac-like notes towards the finish. (NM)" (03/2019)
Starting Bid: $215.00

Bid on this bottle of 1936 Lafaurie Peyraguey, Sauternes.
Starting Bid: $195.00

Bid on this bottle of 1970 d'Yquem, Sauternes. Vinous: "Now at 48 years of age, it has a relatively light bouquet for an Yquem, certainly less rich than the 1971 or 1975, offering gooseberry and quince notes, and just a fleeting glimpse of beeswax and saffron. (NM)" (05/2019)
Starting Bid: $275.00

Bid on this 375 ml 1-bottle lot of 1975 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (99RP, 96DC, 96JG, 95WS). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep gold in color, the 1975 d'Yquem gives up initial notes of cashew butter, manuka honey, dried apricots, musk perfume and fallen leaves over a core of spice cake, applesauce, fungi and lemongrass. The palate is laden with bright, vibrant stone fruit and preserved citrus fruit flavors, laced with honey-nut accents and finishing provocatively earthy. While intense and hedonically satisfying, this beguiling vintage has so many nuances emerging as it unfurls, it stops you in your tracks. Make sure it is the very last wine of the evening, because once you taste this, everything else will pale into insignificance. Although this wine is currently well within its ideal drinking window, there's certainly no rush to drink well-preserved bottles. (LPB)" (08/2019)

Bid on this bottle of 1966 d'Yquem, Sauternes. Four stars and a "Very Good" rating from Michael Broadben, who wrote: "Surprisingly deep orange-amber colour; caramelised barley sugar bouquet; rich flavour. (Tasted 9/1999) " (Michael Broadbent's Pocket Vintage Wine Companion, pg 141)
Starting Bid: $340.00

Bid on this 375 ml 2-bottle lot of 2005 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (97RP, 97WE, 97WS, 95JS, 94DC). Robert Parker's 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)
Starting Bid: $280.00

Bid on this 375 ml 1-bottle lot of 1999 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (93JG, 92RP). John Gilman: "I was very surprised to like the 1999 Yquem a bit better than I liked the 2001, as the vintage in general seems to be decidedly stronger in Sauternes in 2001. The 1999 Yquem offers up a complex and classic nose of toasted coconut, oranges, honey, butter, lovely soil tones, fresh apricot and a lovely framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, deep and quite crisp, with lovely focus and balance, excellent mid-palate depth and a very long, bright and poised finish. A lovely bottle of Yquem. " (09/2009)
Starting Bid: $170.00

Bid on this 4-bottle tasting lot; including 2-bottles of 2001 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes (97WS, 96JS, 93RP, 91ST) and 2-bottles of 2005 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes (92WS). Of the 2001 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes,Wine Spectator writes: "***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. (JS)" (09/2004)
Starting Bid: $160.00
