92+ -94+ The Wine Advocate

...leaps from the glass with vibrant grapefruit, lemon tart and green mango scents with nuances of mandarin peel, lime cordial and chalk dust. The palate is wonderfully vibrant with beautiful tension and a long, subtly layered finish.

92-93James Suckling

This is vivid and lively with spicy and dried-mushroom character. Medium-to full-bodied. Very sweet yet fresh at the end.

89-91Vinous / IWC

The palate is ripe and rounded with white chocolate tinged, honeyed fruit...

16.5Jancis Robinson

Quite marked by creamy vanilla oak on the nose. On the palate, viscous, almond-inflected apricot. Ripe with pineapple but decent acidity too. Very sweet, just enough acidity, masses of decadent pleasure.


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.
