93-95The Wine Advocate

There are copious Satsuma and dried honey scents, hints of beeswax and almond that keep your snout in the glass. The palate is very well-balanced with a viscous entry, just a touch of marmalade and quince coming through, and then blossoming toward the weighty finish that shows just a touch more oak at the moment.

92Vinous / IWC

...The aromatics feel very “contained” with beeswax, dried honey and light spicy aromas...The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, very focused and poised...admirable freshness and there is a lovely spiciness, a dab of ginger on the aftertaste...

Intense, super-clean, classic, beautifully made Sauternes from a vintage that has a deeply dodgy reputation, producing very light, often tart, reds...


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes, Preignac

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.
