2013 Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 98 points

I should be embarrassed, having tasted this wine everyday for close to a week. But it's so good, I kept going back for more. And who could blame me? It is everything a great sweet wine should be. Blazing acidity, fat, rich, ripe and over ripe pineapples, apricots, peaches, nuts and honey that does not quit, with a fresh quality amidst its layers of unctuous, honey drenched fruit. Made from a blend of 70% Semillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc, if you're a fan of sweet wines, this is clearly a glass of wine you need to taste and drink!

2004 Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 93 points

A nice Sauternes, but not a great d'Yquem. More interesting on the tropical, fruit filled nose, than on the palate, this will age well, but it's never going to deliver the fireworks many have come to expect from d'Yquem.

2011 Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 94 points

Fat, powerful, intense and concentrated with sweet, lush, honey coated tropical fruits, apricot and peach, complicated by vanilla and spice notes is primary, yet already delicious. Give it time to develop and evolve and this should be even better.

2011 Château Doisy-Daëne

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 94 points

Luscious, tropical fruit, apricot, candied orange, vanilla and honey scents take no effort to find. On the palate, the wine is sweet, long and rich, with good levels of acidity to keep its honeyed personality fresh and interesting.

2011 Château Climens

Barsac Sémillon more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 96 points

Fresh, finesse in style and floral in nature, this peppy, sweet, honeyed, yellow, tropical fruit filled wine has a lot of promise. Knowing how Climens ages, this should be much better after a decade in the cellar.

1994 Roc de Cambes

Côtes de Bourg Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 87 points

Earthy, with a distinctive truffle, tobacco and olive drenched nose, the rustically,styled wine showed much younger than its true age. Still, this is a not a wine I'd hold for further development.

Honeydew, grapefruit and floral notes, with freshness and vivacity on the palate, leaving you with sweet citrus notes in the finish. Drink this now for its refreshing qualities.

2012 L'if

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 95 points

Deep ruby in color, the wine is tightly wound at the moment requiring air and coaxing to reveal its complex nose of fresh herbs, flowers, thyme, truffles and dark red berries. On the palate, the wine is elegant, silky and refined, with a purity of fruit in the sexy, black, red and white cherry finish. There is good length in the end note. The style of the wine produced here is focused on elegance over power. While they took over the estate in 2010, this is only the second, official vintage for Jacques Thienpont, but the first year where they started to become satisfied with the results.

2012 Château Beausejour (Duffau Lagarrosse)

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 95 points

Minerality, fresh thyme, a hint of mocha, spearmint and ripe, juicy, dark, juicy plums with black cherries are all over the place. The wine is full bodied, supple, long and fresh, with a good sense of purity, stone and black and red fruits in the finish. In 5-10 years, this will really be rockin’!

Truffle, minerals, espresso bean, ripe plums and licorice create the perfume. On the palate, the wine is suave, and polished, with a sensuous display of fresh, sweet, mineral driven cherries.

2012 Château Larcis Ducasse

St. Émilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend more

7/6/2015 - Jeff Leve wrote: 93 points

Truffle, mocha and fresh plums and thyme scents lead to a rich, concentrated, polished, lushly textured display of fresh black cherries, crushed stone and licorice. This was starting to close down. Give this a few years to come around, soften and wake up as it should be even better.
