2009 Guiraud, Sauternes

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 Guiraud, Sauternes

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 ...

2011 Guiraud, Sauternes

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 La Tour Blanche, Sauternes

97 points Wine Spectator: " Dark gold in color already, with intense aromas of dried apricots, citrus, honey and maple syrup with lots of spice. Full-bodied, with lovely sweetness and a long, creamy peach tart, tobacco, honey aftertaste. This is pure botrytis. Best ever from here. Has an incredible finish. *Highly Recommended* (JS)" (03/2006) 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Enticing bright yellow-gold color. Subdued but very pure aromas of orange peel, apricot, honey and spices. Supersweet, fat and spicy; wonderfully round, chewy ...

2007 de Fargues, Sauternes (375ml)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 de Fargues is just a little smudged at first on the nose, so putting it aside for 10-15 minutes, it soon gains more clarity and develops engaging aromas of clear honey, barley sugar, a touch of quince and pear, in many ways more Barsac in style than Sauternes. The palate is beautifully balanced on the entry with touches of lemon curd, barley sugar, pear, apple-blossom and ginger, the finish more persistent than it showed at primeur, lingering like a temptress with illicit intentions."

2007 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

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 ...

2005 Lafaurie-Peyraguey, Sauternes

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 ...

2003 Coutet, Barsac

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 ...

2010 Rieussec, Sauternes

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 ...

2001 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

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. Flavors of toffee, caramel, honey, grilled nuts and spicy oak. The very long fini ...

(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.

Superripe, nuanced nose combines peach, apricot, honey and a suggestion of tropical fruits. Silky, suave and opulent; very concentrated and spicy. This very rich Sauternes carries its 130 g/l r.s. quite gracefully, thanks to firm acids. Finishes very long, with spice and honey notes. Impeccably balanced wine with terrific material."

2016 Suduiraut, Sauternes

97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Suduiraut is fabulous. Crème br?lée, passion fruit, tangerine peel and exotic floral notes all race out of the glass. I marvel at how Suduiraut can deliver so much flavor intensity and yet remain so gracious and classy. The 140 grams of residual sugar are very well integrated. This is such a gorgeous wine. (AG)" (01/2019) 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a dense wine, full of rich fruit, bitter orange and apricot. Its ripe fruit is balanced by the intense botrytis while it is also freshened by the wine's acidity. This ...

2007 Guiraud, Sauternes

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "A gold-colored wine. The palate has intense freshness as well as ripe apricot and orange zest flavors. The acidity cuts through the intense richness, leaving a wine that needs time to fully integrate, and then many more years to mature." (06/2010) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Guiraud 2007 has a typically unabashed, exuberant bouquet with tangerine, pear, white peach and honeysuckle. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely viscous entry, very good weight of fruit, and a lot of botrytis; smooth and very harm ...

2017 Suduiraut, Sauternes (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "What a crazy Sauternes. The density and sweetness are amazing, yet at the same time it’s fresh and bright with an inspirational energy and dryness at the end. Phenolic and textured. " (04/2018) 95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the finest Sauternes I was able to taste for this report was the 2017 Château Suduiraut, from an estate that was unaffected by the April frost. A rockstar blend of 94% Sémillon and 6% Sauvignon, aged in 50% new oak, it boasts a big, thrilling bouquet of orange blossom, honeysuckle, and pure botrytis ...

2013 Suduiraut, Sauternes

97 points James Suckling: "This is phenomenal with superb depth and texture. Full-bodied, very sweet, yet the bright acidity balances the wine out. Creamy mouthfeel with phenolic undertones. Great finish. This wine has a great future. Better in 2021 but already great." (02/2016) 94-96 points Vinous: "The 2013 Suduiraut is magnificent. A bold, direct Sauternes, the 2013 hits the palate with an exotic mélange of apricot jam, lychee, spices, mint and honey. One of the bigger, deeper wines of the vintage, the Suduiraut is firing on all cylinders today. Thi ...

2016 Climens, Barsac

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2016 Climens is a little youthfully mute, revealing notions of ripe peaches, mango and musk melon with touches of cedar chest, orange blossoms, candied ginger and baking bread. Bursting in the mouth with vibrant, energetic stone fruit and tropical layers, it is framed by fantastic freshness, finishing long and creamy.

Five hectoliters a hectare and half went into the second wine." (04/2019) 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The pale to medium lemon-gold colored 2018 Suduiraut comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant notes of candied peel, warm pineapple, guava and key lime pie with hints of orange marmalade and beeswax. The palate is packed with power and richness, with mouth-coating ...

1970 Suduiraut, Sauternes
Bid on this bottle 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. (Drink between 2016-2040)" (01/2018)
