99Robert M. Parker Jr. exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots... ...The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit.

95Wine Spectator

Truly superb. Yellow with a gold hue. Intensespice, honey and dried orange peel aromas.Full-bodied, very sweet and very alive. VibrantSauternes that goes on and on on the palate.Doesn't get much better than this.

94Stephen Tanzer

Full-blown aromas of caramel, toffee, honey, white chocolate and damp earth; slightly Tokaj-like. Hugely concentrated and layered in the mouth; extraordinary sweetness cut by harmonious acidity...

18Jancis Robinson

... Ripe and round and almost a hint of brûlée...


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes

Sauternes makes the world’s most famous dessert wines. Though the appellation lies within the Graves region of Bordeaux’s left bank, the appellation makes only sweet wines from white grapes, primarily Semillon sometimes blended with small amounts of Muscadelle. The five communes within Sauternes are Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes. Barsac also has its own appellation and, typically, Barsac wines are slightly drier and lighter than other Sauternes. Sauternes are made when weather conditions result in a mold called Botrytis cinerea developing on the grapes, which causes them to become especially sweet. Sauternes are not produced every vintage, so successful vintages become especially collectible. Sauternes estates were classified in 1855, and Château d’Yquem, the appellation’s most prestigious estate, was ranked in a class by itself as a Premier Grand Cru. Château d’Yquem wines are among the most prized wines in the world.
