  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    Talk to any elder vigneron in the region and it is this unassuming 14-hectare estate looking up to Ch d’Yquem that they speak of in hushed and revered tones as one of the finest terroirs in the locality, almost not wanting the secret to be let out! Today managed by sixth generation vigneron Laure de Lambert Compeyrot, her passion for the terroir is supremely evident in this delicious wine. 100% pure Semillon joy, sweet, honeyed and rich, with flavours of nectarine and jasmine. Almost liquid crème caramel, it has a silky volume running alongside its flavours of clementine and an undertone of nutmeg and lemon curd. Very lovely.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 91-92

    Dense and sugary approach with a full body and creamy texture. Spiced and tropical.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17

    With a ginger, lemon-balm and pineapple-scented nose and a buoyant mid-palate, this is a lovely wine, and while it lacks serious length and detail, it is enthusiastic and entertaining and will work well for fifteen years.

Sauternes

It is not an exaggeration to say that these are the greatest sweet wines in the world. They are the result of a serendipitous marriage of grape variety, location, annual weather conditions and human care and determination. The vineyards are located on the banks of the cool spring-fed Ciron river which, in autumn, flows into the warmer tidal Garonne and creates rolling evening mists which clothe the vines until the afternoon sun burns them off the following day. This cycle creates perfect conditions for the development of botrytis cinerea or noble rot, and the resulting grape juice is a super concentrated sweet, ambrosial nectar which makes the most heavenly and complex wines with extraordinary ability to age. In 1855 the wines were classified into first and second growths, with Ch d'Yquem rightly receivingits own super status of premier grand cru. Other stunning wines include Chx Sudiraut, Rieussec, Coutet and Climens. While seductively fragrant and sweet when young, if you can bear to wait, you will be amply rewarded with lusciously rich, exotically complex wine.
