[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Coutet Sauternes/Barsac Unreleased - - - 92-93 18 - -
Hide the tasting notes

This shows a lively density, intensity of fruit and spiciness. Pineapples as well. Full body, medium sweetness and a long finish.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Looks heavy in the glass. Unusually spicy. This wine really grabs the palate in a tactile way. Lots of texture and tension between sweetness and acidity. Exuberant. And unashamed.

Score: 18 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2040

Plump at first, with a praline note around the heather, pineapple and nectarine flavors. Stretches out, with a juicy feel, while orange blossom and white peach accents fill in, imparting lift and cut. This packs a bit of power, but there’s lots of buried freshness as well. The finish is seriously long already.

Score: 95 - 98 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

This shows lots of dried fruits and intensity. Full body, medium sweetness and a long, flavorful finish. Plenty of dried fruit character. Very dense.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Light and clean on the nose. Pears and riches and very nervy. Exciting wine that is not playing the concentration card. Neat and correct.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2035

Bright peach, nectarine and tangerine notes form the core, with a lacing of hazelnut. Shows a touch of youthful coarseness on the finish that has yet to settle in, but this remains concentrated overall.

Score: 92 - 95 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to shopping basket] Doisy Vedrines NEW Sauternes/Barsac £220 - - - 95-96 18 - -
Hide the tasting notes

A solid wine with dried fruits, spices, dried mushrooms and medium sweetness. Full-bodied, sweet and intense.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Subtle nose and extremely rich on the palate. Very beguiling. With a tingly finish.

Score: 18 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2038

Offers a bold, spicy profile, with nectarine, ginger, hazelnut and pineapple notes. Shows lots of energy, brimming with spice and focused acidity through the finish. A great showing.

Score: 94 - 97 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Extravagant de Doisy Daene Sauternes/Barsac Unreleased - - - - 18 - -
Hide the tasting notes

Smoky and pretty with some floral elements. No more concentrated than La Tour Blanche but very pretty indeed. Lots of vegy floral elements.

Score: 18 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2038

Unctuous, with almond paste, nectarine and creamed yellow apple notes forming the core, leading to a finish laced with hazelnut oil accents. This tightly coiled version will take some time to unwind. A likely classic in the making.

Score: 95 - 98 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Fargues Sauternes/Barsac Unreleased - - - - 17-18 - -
Hide the tasting notes

Heady nose and relatively low acid for 2014 but lots of botrytis and sweetness. Pungent and traditional. Impressively persistent.

Score: 17 - 18 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2022-2040

Offers a lovely feel, with creamed peach, apricot and ginger notes, laced with almond and heather accents, leading to a long finish of hazelnut and singed orange. Extremely backward right now, but exhibits amazing depth and length already.

Score: 95 - 98 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
