2009 Guiraud, Sauternes
Top Pick!
97 points Vinous: "The 2009 Guiraud is one of the gems of Sauternes this vintage, one of the finest offerings in recent years. It has a wonderful, beautifully delineated bouquet with expressive scents of wild honey, orange pith, Seville orange marmalade and just a hint of pineapple. The palate is beautifully defined with pure botrytised fruit, supremely well balanced with a vivacious, ginger and white pepper tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. Outstanding. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. Drink through 2055. (NM)" (03/2019)...

2001 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)
Top Pick!
100 points James Suckling: "This is so layered and intense on the palate with lemons and dried pineapple, mango and honey. Full body, very sweet, but it remains tangy and vibrant. Shows such amazing balance and intensity. Crazy finish. Hints of vanilla and apple purée. One of the greatest Yquems ever. All about purity here. " (09/2013) 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I have had the very good fortune to taste the 2001 d'Yquem perhaps a dozen times since its release and have never been less than absolutely floored by its combination of poise, ...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Denis Dubourdieu conjured a wonderful Barsac in 2007. Here there is an initial lightness on the nose that builds with each swirl of the glass. It exhibits fine minerality with apple, dried honey and a touch of wet stone. The palate is very harmonious with good acidity, very focused and succinct with great precision towards the poised finish. This has barely starting motoring, but it possesses an unbridled sense of nonchalance. (NM)" (02/2012) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very fruity, showing tropical fruit such a...

2009 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 d'Yquem bursts from the glass with gregarious crème caramel, allspice, dried apricots, mandarin peel and pineapple upside down cake scents plus a fragrant undercurrent of fungi, acacia honey, candied ginger, musk perfume and frangipani. Full-bodied and full-on hedonic in the mouth, the rich, tightly wound layers are still amazingly youthful with bags of citrus sparks and an incredibly long, perfumed finish. Possessing a residual sugar of 157 grams per liter and 13.6% alcohol...

2007 Rieussec, Sauternes (Previously $90) (Previously $90)
Top Pick!
93-96 points Wine Spectator: "Balanced and very spicy, with almond paste and apricot. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with a long, fruity, tangy finish. Layered and stylish. (JS, Web Only—2008)" 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, pale yellow-gold. Aromas of very ripe peach, honey and vanilla are a bit youthfully disjointed. Sweet, supple and fat, currently showing more spice than fruit. Finishes broad and spicy, with a suggestion of minerality. (ST)" (08/2008) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Rieussec is a b...

2015 d'Yquem, Sauternes (375ml)
Back In Stock!
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...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1990 continues to develop exceptionally well (better than I thought), and now looks to be a worthy rival of the dazzling 1988. The superb aromatics (pineapple, acacia, vanilla, and honey) are followed by a rich, full-bodied, atypically powerful Climens that possesses adequate acidity, high alcohol, and even higher levels of extract and fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2030. (RP)" (04/1995) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Gorgeous. Yellow color with a gold hue. Aromas of vanilla, honey and lemon, with a hint of ...

2001 Guiraud, Sauternes
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Spectator: "Golden yellow. Butterscotch and vanilla with hints of ripe apples; full-bodied, with lots of sweetness and a spicy apricot and honey aftertaste. Excellent concentration and balance. Loads of botrytis character on the finish. Intense. Hard to refrain from drinking it now, it's so luscious and rich. *Top 100 of 2004, Highly Recommended* (JS)" (09/2004) 95 points James Suckling: "Intensely fruity and rich with wonderful sweetness and loads of spicy and honey character with a dried apricot undertone. It hasn’t changed much since ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. It never ceases to amaze me just how well Raymond-Lafon performs year after year. The 2007 has an elegant bouquet with touches of tangerine and dried honey, the underlying minerality beginning to show through with further aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry, good acidity with a very taut finish that will need time to express itself. This remains one of the best value wines of the vintage. Tasted January 2011. (NM)" (02/2012) 92 points Wine Spectator:...

2014 Coutet, Barsac
Back In Stock!
97 points Wine Enthusiast: "Powered by intense botrytis, this wine is opulent and ripe, with spice, yellow fruit and honey flavors. It has just the right balance of acidity to maintain its shape and proportions. It's likely to age well over many years. Drink from 2024. *Top 100 Wines of 2018, Cellar Selection*" (12/2017) 96 points Wine Spectator: "This shows the vivid, racy side of Barsac, with streaming flavors of pineapple, yellow apple, green plum and white ginger, displaying lovely energy from start to finish. Ends with enough honeysuckle and orang...

99 points James Suckling: "This wine has exceptional clarity, balance and freshness, with lots of spicy botrytis character. Full body, medium-sweet and a crisp finish. It’s racy and refined. What’s impressive is the intensity of noble rot that makes the wine feel almost dry. This is the greatest wine ever made here. Made from organic grapes." (01/2014) 97 points Wine Spectator: "A large-scale version, with seamlessly layered notes of almond cream, apricot, ginger, mango, piecrust, papaya and toasted hazelnut. The long, spice-infused finish shows ample ...

2003 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes
Back In Stock!
97 points James Suckling: "This is full body, very sweet with an amazing depth of fruit and spices. Loads of botrytis character. Dried pineapple and apple character. Tight and closed. Best ever from here. Should be even better in 2018." (10/2012) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Very, very intense aromas of dried apricot and lemon. Honey, syrup and Golden Delicious. Full-bodied, viscous and very sweet. Pour it on pancakes. Love it. And drink it. Who can wait? Best after 2010. *Ranked #6 in Top 100 Wines of 2006* (JS)" (03/2006) 93 points Robert Parker's Wi...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1988 reveals layer upon layer of honeyed pineapple-and orange-scented and -flavored fruit, vibrant acidity, high levels of botrytis, and a fabulously long, yet well-focused finish. It is a great wine. (RP)" (12/1997) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Youthful yellow color, with aromas of sliced lemons, lemon tart, and tropical fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with medium sweetness and a lively fruity finish. Lots of dried fruit and spicy botrytis character. Refined and balanced. (JS, Web Only-2009)" Jancis Robinson...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. Under blind conditions, the Yquem 2007 shines like a diamond. Nevertheless, it is initially rather taciturn on the nose, eventually opening up beautifully with touches of lemon curd, Mirabelle, and clear honey. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine definition and there seems to be a great deal of energy and vigor dispensed for your pleasure. There is such race and nervosity, and then that finish just purrs with harmony and focus. This Yquem feels just so alive and vivac...



92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château de Malle has a pleasing, harmonious, botrytis-rich bouquet with fine delineation: honeysuckle, minerals and orange-blossom gently floating from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with tensile citrus fruit that marries beautifully with the clear honey, mandarin and citrus notes. There is a compelling build to this wine in the mouth. (NM)" (06/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Green apple, toffee and lemon tart aromas open to a full bod...

92 points Wine Spectator: "Gold color. Loads of dried pineapple and apple, with honey and melons as well on the nose. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with lots of dried fruits on the palate. Long and lively. Almost exotic. (JS, Web Only-2009)"

91 points from Tanzer: "Healthy pale color. Ethereal, highly complex nose combines floral and herbal scents with notes of pineapple, marzipan, mint and spicy oak. Moderately viscous, sweet and shapely; concentrated and fresh. Like the '97, this is silky and suave. The very long, ripe finish hints at honey and caramel." (Aug/98)

2001 Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sauternes (375ml)
Back In Stock!
96 points James Suckling: "Caramel, praline, dried mango pit and dried papaya. Full-bodied and very sweet with layers of apricot and tropical fruit leading to a very oily, nutty finish. The raw power and intensity are unmistakable, but a fine line of acidity still keeps this flowing and food friendly. " (08/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Clos Haut-Peyraguey has a very pure and honeyed bouquet with marmalade, quince and honeysuckle aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is viscous on the entry with very good weight in t...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the château, the 2007 Château Doisy-Védrines does not achieve the same level of precision as the 2006 on the nose, although there is plenty of botrytis here with scents of melted candle wax and white peach. 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 a...

95 points James Suckling: "This is powerful and racy with lots of class. Full body, very sweet with lots of spicy botrytis character. Intense. Drink or hold. " (10/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Classic Sauternes, treading the fine line between sweetness and elegance. Initially, it seems to be dominated by the botrytis, but then sweet fruits also show, with ripe yellow fruits, honey and almonds, touched with citrus. As it develops, the wine will become richer and more intense. (RV)" (06/2008) 92 points Wine Spectator: "There's beautiful ripe fruit...

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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 crèm...

95-100 points Wine Spectator: "Intensely botrytised, with loads of allspice and mineral character, yet lively and exciting. Full-bodied, racy and very long. Fresh sweetness. (Web-2002)" 89-92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold. Exotic aromas of ripe apricot and sultana raisin, with liqueur-like and candied notes. Very sweet, concentrated and powerful. Extremely young, chewy and dense, with sugar, acidity and alcohol balanced at a high level. Note of licorice. Shows excellent delineation and structure from the outset, as well a...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted single blind against its peers. The Chateau Rieussec 2008 should become an excellent Sauternes for the vintage. It has a floral bouquet with peach, tinned apricot and a touch of marmalade, all with fine delineation, and touches of lemon curd developing with aeration. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, with great depth and a luscious, vanillary note with hints of orange peel, marmalade and quince towards the long finish. Excellent. (NM)" (02/2012) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Rich rather than sweet, t...

95 points Wine Spectator: "Honey, apple tart and lemon rind. Full-bodied, medium-sweet and very spicy with intense flavors of mace, apple and honey. Long finish. Thick and powerful. (JS)" (03/2006) 92 points Vinous: "Bright yellow-gold. Sexy aromas of orange liqueur and spices. Sweet, round and pure, with a lush texture verging on unctuous. And yet this is wonderfully aromatic and light on its feet. Very ripe and very complex in the mouth, with harmonious acids framing the flavors of orange oil, peach and spicy oak. Finishes very long, ripe and seamles...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This looks to be a good Suduiraut. A medium golden color, with a very honeyed, rich, floral bouquet... Sweet, with fine honeyed flavors, this is an elegant, graceful Suduiraut with plenty of character... (RP)" (01/1998) Wine Spectator: "Delicious and balanced, showing exciting earthy, white truffle flavors that add complexity to the honey and spice notes. Medium intensity. " (04/1995)
Price: $49.99

Chateau l’Avocat’s vineyard location, just a few hundred yards from the Garonne River are in a perfect spot for their grapes to catch the morning mist that will infect the grapes and allow “boytrytis” to flourish, creating a lush wine of great sweetness. Prior to World War II Chateau L'Avocat was recognised as one of the top properties in the southern Graves. The property enjoyed considerable success as evidenced by its winning of Gold medals in the prestigious Concours Agricole Paris in 1932 and 1934 and a Diplome d'honneur Exposition Internationale A...

91 points Wine Spectator: "Medium-gold color, with aromas of lemon tart, curd, piecrust and honey. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with bright acidity and a long, exciting finish. Balanced and refined. (JS, Web-2009)" 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted as part of a vertical held at the chateau. The Guiraud 1988 offers the most pleasurable aromatics of the 1980s with a lifted perfumed nose of lanolin, beeswax, brown sugar and quince that all vie for attention. There is a pleasant adhesive scent and fine delineation. The palate is fresh in the mo...

95-96 points James Suckling: "I love the botrytis spice character to this wine with dried apricots and tropical fruits. It's full bodied, medium sweet with a long intense finish. It's very layered. Sweet wine of the vintage." (04/2011) 94-96 points Wine Enthusiast: "Structured firm, very spicy, while also showing fresh pineapple acidity. Concentrated and packed with botrytis. (RV)" (06/2011) 94 points Wine Spectator: "A muscular version, with dacquoise and marzipan notes leading the way for creamed orange, white peach, ginger, mirabelle compote and t...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Doisy Daene 2001 is still quite backward on the nose compared to its peers and as a consequence, demands more coaxing from the glass: beeswax, honeycomb and a touch of lanolin. The palate is well balanced with a vibrant, citrus-fresh entry. This Barsac is struck through with engaging, lovely orange peel and citrus lemon notes here that segue into a refined and tensile finish that leaves you wanting any sip. (NM)" (10/2014) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale gold color. Deeply pitche...

97 points James Suckling: "This appears to be the synthesis of the fabulous 2001 and 2003. 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. Too excellent not to drink. " (07/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Delivers lots of botrytis spice, with lemon tart and cooked apple. Full-bodied, with loads of cream and vanilla and an intense tropical fruit and honey aftertaste. Long and viscous, with a layered and beautiful spicy finish. Hard not t...

This is a young Sauternes built for aging. Best after 2010. (JS)" (09/2004) 93 points Vinous: "Pale yellow-gold. Orange peel, quince, honey and sexy oak tones of va...

99 points 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...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Lots of lemon curd and vanilla character, with hints of spices. Full-bodied, sweet and very fresh, with a spicy, honey aftertaste. A beautifully balanced Sauternes. Spicy and chunky on the finish. Best after 2008. (JS)" (09/2004) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow. Exotic, expressive aromas of apricot, honey, white raisin and caramel. Superripe and moderately thick but with sound acids giving it excellent balance.

To leaven the power, there is acidity, but this is certainly for aging. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (06/2010) 95 points Wine Spectator: "Dried lemon and floral aromas lead to loads of botrytis spice and bitter lemon peel in this young, full-bodied sweetie, with hints of lively lime and honey.

92 points Wine Spectator: " *Highly Recommended* Aromas of ripe apples, honey and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, very sweet and spicy, with loads of spicy botrytis character and a long finish. Lively! Better than the 2001. Best after 2008." (03/2006) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale yellow-gold. Peach, coconut, menthol and sexy oak spices on the nose. Sweet and smooth if a bit youthfully closed today, showing very good but not outstanding complexity. But this moderately fleshy 2003 comes across as suave, with its rich...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "**Cellar Selection** Very textured, this is a complex wine. There is a strong sense of minerality here, along with flavors of ripe apricots, peaches and grapes. The texture is zesty and tangy, showing some taut, nervy acidity. This is a wine for serious aging so don’t drink before 2017." (02/2014) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A very ripe and broad style, with intense pineapple, passion fruit and mango notes, featuring a broad finish that takes on a toasted almond frame and a light accent of spiced nutmeg. For fans of the big...

94 points and an Editors' Choice, Wine Enthusiast: "A beautifully ripe wine, layered with the richest fruit, the acidity offering a bright moment within the richness. Botrytis is there, like a hard core for the pillow of ripe apricots, lychees, spice and fine freshness." (06/10) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Lafaurie-Peyraguey has fulfilled all my expectations since its impressive primeur showing.

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted at the “First Growth” lunch in London. One the outstanding Yquem’s of the modern age, this ’89 rarely disappoints. It has a limpid amber/golden colour. The nose is exuberant, just soaring from the glass with acacia honey, orange-blossom, apricots, quince and a touch of wild heather. Brilliant definition. The palate is perhaps more introspective than I anticipated but beautifully balanced with viscous honeyed fruit, tangerine, peach and just a hint of Seville orange marmalade. Lacquers the mouth in heavenly...

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "The wine shows intensity and concentration, offering ripe yellow fruits and honeyed sweetness tempered by boytritis. Initially, it seems to be all sweetness, then that essential acidity creeps in with the wonderful freshness of squeezed lemon. (RV)" (03/2015) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château La Tour Blanche 2014 is a blend of 82% Sémillon, 12% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle that has 130 grams per liter residual sugar, a level that might be lower than what I was expecting, though still around ave...

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the top sweet wines in this report is the 2016 Château Coutet, which has the vintage’s plush, opulent style as well as thrilling purity and good acids. Pineapple, white flowers, sugared peach, and honeyed notes all emerge from this full-bodied, layered, balanced Barsac that’s already impossible to resist yet will evolve gracefully 2+ decades."
