White Bordeaux 1947 Climens 11 Bottle 75cl £950
  • Two bottles recently tasted, one in Beaune and the other rounding off a Saint-Émilion vertical in London. It is a famous vintage for Climens although I wonder whether it now matches the awe-inspiring '49? The second bottle is just as I expected. Deep auburn and slightly burnished in colour, it has a showy bouquet of mango chutney, syrup of fig and quince that might not boast the delineation of the '49, but who cares? The palate is unctuous on the entry, lower in acidity compared to coeval vintages, with mango, honey, quince and marmalade generously lacquered upon the persistent and unctuous finish. Though, there is nothing wrong with this bottle, from experience I know you might chance upon bottles that are better. Tasted at La Trompette restaurant in London.

    The staff at Cordier have every right to be happy with this splendidly concentrated, complex, fully mature wine. Tremendous intensity, viscous, ripe, and layered with honeyed, apricot-flavored fruit, this unctuous wine is not tiring or heavy to drink, but lively and effusively fruity. Anticipated maturity: Now-2000. Last tasted, 3/91.

    Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition, The Wine Advocate

    Laville's 1996 is one of the lighter-styled efforts from this estate in the nineties. Nevertheless, it has managed to cram gorgeous levels of complexity and elegance into a citrusy, melony, richly fruity format. While it does not possess the weight and body of such blockbuster vintages as 1994, it is impressive. There is good acidity, and the wine comes across as clean, crisp, and stylish in an understated, restrained manner. This wine should drink well for 12-15+ years. Last tasted 11/97

White Bordeaux 1997 Rieussec 2 Case 12 75cl £520
  • Wine Advocate #128
    Apr 2000 Robert M. Parker, Jr. 91 Drink: 2002 - 2025 $29-$133
    This wine contains an extremely high percentage of Semillon (usually about 90%), which was to its benefit in 1997. The wine is light medium gold-colored, with a blockbuster nose of Grand Marnier liqueur intertwined with flower blossoms, smoky new oak, and coconut. Well-integrated wood has resulted in a seamless, full-bodied, unctuously-textured wine with considerable sweetness. This is a stunningly proportioned, beautifully pure wine. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2025.

White Bordeaux 1999 Suduiraut 1 Case 6 75cl £180
  • he 1999 Suduiraut has an intense, slightly petrolly bouquet that in an odd way, feels as if it comes from an older era than succeeding vintages, which is true when you consider that Christian Seely took over in 2001. The palate is well balanced with plenty of mandarin, Clementine and quince. I admire the depth of this 1999 Sauternes and perhaps it misses the precision on the finish, although it does not quite have the length. Tasted at the Suduiraut vertical at the château.

    Tasted blind at the 2005 Southwold tasting, the 2005 Larrivet Haut Brion Blanc has a lovely resinous, lightly honeyed bouquet with hints of toffee apple and nutmeg with just a touch of reduction. The palate is well balanced with good depth, actually not that far in style from a mature Chardonnay, with a pleasing waxy finish. I remember this showing very well back in 2009 and several years later it remains a supremely well-crafted, complex dry white Bordeaux. Tasted February 2017.

    This stunningly rich 100% Sauvignon Blanc is drinking fabulously well at present, yet it has the potential to evolve for 15-20 more years. Waxy lemon oil, honeysuckle, nectarine, and subtle new oak characteristics are all present in this light gold-colored, long wine.

White Bordeaux 2007 Extragavant de Doisy-Daene 1 Case 6 37.5cl £575
  • Delivering 12.0% ABV and 200gms residual sugar, Denis Dubourdieu’s luxury Barsac, the 2007 L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene, does not hold back, born with a lucid golden hue with big fat tears (of joy). The bouquet is very intense but very tight at first, demanding time to unfurl in the glass at its own pleasure: white peach, apricot, orange-blossom and a touch of marmalade with breathtaking definition. The palate is full-bodied with a viscous entry, so pure and caressing with mellifluous honey, apricot and citrus lemon, wonderful delineation on the finish, the thread of acidity interwoven through that powerful finish with the length of an ocean liner. Brilliant. Drink 2015-2050.

    DECANTER:

    Berenice Lurton and her team managed to pick the crop just hours before rains fell on October 23. Tasting through every one of their lots in 2010, there was a theme of tautness, racy acidity and spice. Focusing upon two batches representing about 14% of the harvest, there was patently exquisite balance and a sense of concentrated but efficient power, counterbalanced by immense purity and effervescence. Their problem will be knowing exactly which lots to deselect! Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011

    The 2011 Climens repeated its performance from a few months ago. There is a tangible richness on the nose, touches of honeycomb and chalk infusing the honeyed fruit before those fig-like scents begin to emerge. The palate is beautifully balanced, unctuous in the mouth with a lovely salinity coming through on the long finish. It is way too young to strut its stuff at the moment, so afford it at least a decade in bottle. Tasted April 2016.
