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.

2013 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml)

93-96 points Vinous: "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.

2015 Symphonie de Haut Peyraguey, Sauternes

88-90 points Vinous: "The 2015 Symphonie de Haut-Peyraguey, the château's second wine, is lifted and weightless in the glass, with an airy expression of sweet floral and botrytised notes. Gentle and moderately sweet, the Symphonie will hold considerable appeal for readers who find some of the top Sauternes too sweet or rich. Lightly honeyed notes, baked apple and vanillin add the closing shades of nuance. This is very pretty and nicely done. The Symphonie is 95% Sémillon and 5% Sauvignon. Tasted two times.

2007 de Fargues, Sauternes

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The de Fargues 2007 delivers 13.9% alcohol and 134 grams of residual sugar. Picking commenced on September 11, with slow botrytis formation and recommenced October 2-24, the picking ale to be conducted at a relatively leisurely pace. It has a very typical de Fargues nose that has lost its tongue at first, but it opens up to reveal a slightly spirituous bouquet with clear honey, pressed flowers, almond and a distant scent of the sea.

2002 Suduiraut, Sauternes

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from the Chateau reserves at the estate. Again, that barley sugar note comes through giving it a Barsac, harmonious with a little mandarin and some lemon curd. Still a little tight. The palate is balanced with ripe honeyed fruit, orange rind and a touch of Seville orange marmalade. Nice taut finish with good acidity, the mineralite compensating for a lack of depth. Very fine for the vintage. (NM)" (09/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Ultraclean, with apple, vanilla and honey aromas that follow through to ...Read More »

1996 Guiraud, Sauternes

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "For sure, the 1996 has a more composed bouquet than the 1995 with marmalade, Clementine and touches of brown sugar and chlorine emerging from the almost Barsac-like aromatic profile. The palate has a waxy texture, touches of spice and marmalade that segue into a tense, bitter lemon and bitter orange finish. Comparing the 1996 with recent vintages, it just fall short in terms of the complexity and nuance, but it remains a pleasurable Sauternes, albeit one outshone by the succeeding vintage.

2003 Guiraud, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points James Suckling: "I might have a slight preference for this over the 2001 but I can’t make up my mind yet. It seems to have more richness and sweetness, with loads of apple tart, caramel and spice character. The noble rot certainly did its good here. Long, long finish. Beautiful sweet wine. Drink or hold." (07/2013) 95 points Wine Spectator: "This is very sweet and rich on the nose, with toffee, honey and spices. Full-bodied, with thick honey, spice, dried apricot and syrup flavors. Lasts for minutes on the palate. Big botrytis bomb. Love it. ...Read More »

1990 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)
Bid on this half-bottle of 1990 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml) (99RP, 95WS, 94ST). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An extraordinary effort, Yquem's 1990 is a rich and fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance and finesse. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+. (RP)" (04/1999)

2002 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml)

90 points John Gilman: "Like the 2005 Doisy-Védrines, the 2002 really showed well at this tasting and was a most delicious example for immediate drinking pleasure. 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 »

2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The palate is vibrant on the entry with impressive weight: hints of orange peel and apricot with a tender, almost understated finish. This improves in the glass, gaining more complexity and nuance and yet never quite demonstrating the sheer ambition as the 2009. Yet I notice even within the limited amount of time at my disposal some melioration in the glass, gaining harmony and tension and so I would not hesitate in decanting this very fine Barsac. (NM)" (08/2015) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine C ...Read More »

1998 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml) Back In Stock!
1998 Raymond-Lafon, Sauternes (375ml)

Robert Parker says: "Raymond-Lafon is a name to watch in the Sauternes district, particularly if one is looking for a wine that is close to the brilliance and majestic richness of Yquem for less than one-third the price. This small estate abuts Yquem's vineyard and has an excellent reputation." The estate of Raymond-Lafon fell into neglect, and it was not until 1972 that Pierre Meslier, the manager of Yquem, purchased this vineyard and began to rebuild this wine's once fabulous reputation. With a tiny yield of 9 hectoliters per hectare (even less than Y ...Read More »

1997 Suduiraut, Sauternes (375ml)

Tasted three times. Big wine that is fat and oily, with extremely rich and honeyed flavors. Perfect acidity gives the wine excellent balance. 92 points Stephen Tanzer: "Nose shows pungent aromas of fruit salad, flowers, coconut and oak spices, and a honeyed ripeness. Supersweet, highly concentrated and strong in extract, given clarity by fresh acids. Racy botrytis tones of honey and licorice. Finishes firm, long and complex." (July/Aug 00) 90 points Wine Spectator: "An outstanding Sauternes, with wonderful aromas of cream, caramel and honey. Full-bodie ...Read More »
