"The palate is well balanced with a citric entry, touches of apricot and lime. ...tightly coiled towards the finish with the acidity slicing through the viscous honey fruit with a touch of Tropicana. Again, this is a very focused, tensile Sauternes with beguiling clarity." -Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, 92-94 pts.

2011 Carmes de Rieussec Sauternes

"Bold, with ginger, creamed peach, warm piecrust, quince and creamed pear notes all bolted together and wrapped with a flattering, warm tarte Tatin hint. Delivers more oomph than cut. For fans of the broader, fuller style."

2010 Chateau Doisy Vedrines Barsac

“The Doisy-Vedrines has a refined bouquet of lemon curd, dried honey and just a touch of quince, perhaps not quite as rich as recent vintages, but very well-defined. The palate is well-balanced, with a touch of lime cordial and passion fruit on the entry, and zesty acidity and impressive precision towards the taut, slightly spicy rich finish. Returning after an hour, this sample has enhanced clarity and volume, and subsequent encounters confirm a very promising Doisy-Vedrines.”

Reviewed by: Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate - 91-93pts.

"Thick and spicy, with unctuous, still slightly raw-seeming layers of apricot, peach and fig. Ginger cream and green tea check in on the finish. Rather backward still, but there's lots balled up."

2009 Chateau Sigalas Rabaud Sauternes

"The Sigalas-Rabaud has a well defined nose: grapefruit, nectarine, honey and lime, much more primal than some of the other 2009s. The palate is very well balanced with excellent acidity: apricot, honeysuckle, a touch of orange zest and then vibrant white peach bursting across the finish with lime flower and lemongrass on the aftertaste. Wonderful persistency, power and freshness. Without question: the 2009 is the best Sigalas-Rabaud that I have tasted and this nectar comes highly recommended."
