I am planning on buying 6 half-bottles of Sauternes, just as a little gift to myself. Which ones would you recommend, and why? My budget does not allow for d'Yquem, so I'm looking for good QPR. Thanks.

Climens has long been a favorite of mine. I have been to several blind Sauterne tastings, including d'Yquem, and invariably the Climens comes in second. A complex, lovely wine IMO.
