2001 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)

2015 Haut Charmes, Sauternes (375ml)

Haut Charmes is a very special Sauternes bottling, made from the younger vines of one 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.

2005 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

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)" (06/2008) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes.

2009 Smith Haut Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Smith-Haut-Lafitte hit a home run with their red Pessac-Leognan and came very close to perfection with their dry white Graves. Possibly the best dry white the estate has produced since the proprietors, the Cathiards, acquired the property in 1990, this wine exhibits a sensational fragrance of buttered citrus, honeyed melons and a touch of grapefruit, lemon zest and orange rind. It also displays grapefruit on the attack and mid-palate as well as real opulence, terrific acidity and length. Drink it over the next 15 ...Read More »

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Climens 2001 has always possessed a deliriously complex and intense bouquet that is beautifully defined: dried quince and marmalade, honeycomb and antique furniture. There is an inchoate, resinous element that will surely surface over the next decade or so. This is a bouquet that demands attention and in this blind tasting, sticks out from the crowd, a sui generis.

The fine bouquet offers up a stylish mélange of pineapple, honey, orange, soil tones and buttery oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and shows fine mid-palate depth, with fine framing acids, impressive complexity and very good length and grip on the finish. 2002 is hardly a legendary vintage for Sauternes, but the 2002 Doisy-Védrines is a delicious bottle for drinking now or over ...Read More »
