Wine Spectator’s James Molesworth is in Bordeaux to taste the 2012 vintage from barrel to determine the quality and character of the young wines, in order to inform wine lovers who may be considering buying them en primeur, or as futures.

While spending two weeks in the region, Molesworth visits numerous châteaus, interviews many vintners and evaluates hundreds of wines, some at the châteaus and most in blind tastings organized by Wine Spectator at independent locations.

Here are his reviews of 23 of the sweet wines of Sauternes and Barsac, with scores and tasting notes.
