96-97James Suckling

You can really see the wild botrytis character in this wine with lots of spice and dried-mushroom character. Full-bodied and intensely sweet palate, yet there’s bright acidity and a spicy finish.

94-96Jeb Dunnuck

...medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of lemon curd, white flowers, and salty minerality. I love its purity of fruit. It’s a rockingly good white well worth seeking out.

92+ -94+ The Wine Advocate

...bursts from the glass with vibrant notes of grapefruit, fresh pineapple, mango and guava plus nuances of lemongrass, crushed rocks and allspice. The palate has plenty of spring in its step with energetic citrus and tropical fruit layers, finishing long and zesty.

90-92Vinous / IWC attractive and very pure bouquet that seduces with beautifully defined scents of acacia honey, praline and subtle white peach. The palate is lively on the entry and displays a fine bead of acidity. A welcome touch of stem ginger enlivens the finish...

16.5Jancis Robinson

Smells of candied pineapple but with the almond-paste notes of botrytis. Rich and tropical on the palate, reined in by that almond flavour. Broad, rich and spicy with good length and enough acidity for balance. Full and generous.


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes, Bommes

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.
