Sauternes 1er Cru Classe
A wonderful sweet dessert wine. A splendidly concentrated, complex, fully mature wine. Tremendous intensity, viscous, ripe, and layered with honeyed, apricot-flavoured fruit, this unctuous wine is not tiring or heavy to drink, but lively and effusively fruity.
Price: £139.00 (2 in Stock)

Margaux Premiere Grand Cru Classe (high shoulder, good label)
*** 91 points - Wine Journal ***
"this is a classic mature Claret that is delectable to drink now…and not too much later. There is a palpable coolness, almost aloofness on the nose that one often finds on this vintage, the overriding sense that this was a good vintage but not a hot one. It offers graphite, sous-bois and tobacco, the fruit having long ebbed away, yet it is still fresh and beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied and a little austere. Yet there is a sense of natural balance with fresh acidity and beguiling tertiary and cedar notes towards the finish. Wonderful.

Pauillac 1st Growth Classification
Very top shoulder. Label bin soiled.
Robert Parker writes '... the dark garnet colour and classic sweet, spicy, tobacco, coffee, and black currant aromas are enticing. The wine still has powerful tannin in the finish, which contributes to the dry, austere character this example has always exhibited. One of the more intellectually-styled Moutons, the 1966 is a classic example of the vintage, as well as of the chateau's Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated style. Tasted 10/97 Bordeaux, 3rd Edition. Rating 90/100 (outstanding)

Pauillac, 5th Growth Classification
The Pontet Canet has a good, dark ruby colour. The bouquet of wood and ripe plums is enjoyable, and not complex. In the mouth, the wine has plump, chunky, fruity flavours of good intensity.
Price: £99.00 (3 in Stock)
Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classe
A rare old vintage from an exceptional Château close to d'Yquem. The 1966 Suduiraut reveals a textbook, light gold colour with a slight greenish hue. There is good acidity, high alcohol, and considerable sweetness with a long sweet finish.
Price: £185.00 (10 in Stock)
Sauternes 1er Grand cru Classe
Sweet White Wine
A good wine. On the nose, there is some orange marmalade, honey and spice character in this wine. Turns quite woody, with lots of caramel.
YQUEM HARVEST NOTES: Weather was mediocre in summer, but improved in autumn. The harvest was very long: 48 days' work out of 55 to bring in a very worthwhile and slightly above average crop in terms of volume. A very rich vintage.
