Château-d'Yquem Sauternes 2000
Château d'Yquem is the the most sought after sweet wine in the world ... Planted to 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon, this legendary First Growth estate is located in the heart of the Sauternes region, and sits atop a small hill overlooking its neighbors. Although much Yquem is enjoyed at a very young age while fresh and lightly sweet, the wine remarkably has the ability to age for 50-75+ years.
Château-Climens Barsac 2005 375mlTHIS IS A HALF BOTTLE This First Growth Barsac producer is planted to 100% Semillon with old vines averaging 40+ years. The wine is aged for 18-24 months in barrels with 30-50% new oak and the wine is neither fined nor filtered to extract the deepest concentration and fullest complexity. Parker calls Climens, "one of France's monumental sweet wines and a personal favorite. It combines great nobility with laser-like flavor precision. A tour de force in winemaking." He considers it "the most companionable with food, the most complex and the most compelling wine to drink in the Barsac/Sauternes region."

Château-La-Mondotte Saint Emilion 2003
Château-Léoville-Las-Cases Saint Julien 2003This stellar estate is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc, with an average age of 35+ year vines. Located next to Chateau Latour, the wines produced here are majestic, ageworthy, and traditional. A Second Growth of Saint Julien since the classification of 1855, Leoville Las Cases not only deserves this status, it is thought by many critics and collectors to be of the highest First Growth quality. It is also considered one of the longest lived wines in virtually every vintage. In an extraordinary vintage such as 2010, this could turn out to be a 40+ year old wine.
Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2011World famous fifth-growth Lynch-Bages is planted to 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with over 200 acres of vineyards. This large estate has remained essentially intact since the 16th century, and was named for the Bages plateau and the ownership of the estate by Thomas Lynch in the 17th and 18th centuries. The wine spends about 15 months in oak with 60% new oak, and tends to be a big, powerful wine. Robert Parker says that, 'Since the mid-1980s, Lynch-Bages has been performing well above its fifth-growth status, producing wines equivalent to a second-growth. Often referred to as the 'poor man's Mouton Rothschild,' it is a sure bet in most vintages.'
