Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

This is my third and youngest encounter with this elusive Y, and as always it is tastes like the epitome of hedonism. I had to take a moment alone with the wine just to acknowledge that, those who truly love wine, will know exactly what I’m talking about. The predominant flavours on this wine are orange marmalade, orange peel, and fresh tangerine… All working in unison on the palate, no single element ever outshining another. Creating harmony. — a month ago

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2018

Last bottle of my 2018 SC.

Followed over two days. Juicy, ripe and balanced. Astounding value at $30. Haven’t found the signature TRB blood orange profile in these RM SCs, but that’s a small nitpick. Loads of red and black berry fruit upfront, boysenberry, red currant and dark florals. Mid palate was much better on day two as it bulked up and showed the nervy side of SC Pinot. It has a high toned/elegant profile while retaining weight. Stylistically it sits in between RRV and cool climate SC. Banging value, as always. Drink now or in the next 3-5yrs.

Brut Champagne Blend 2002

Golden Lemon colour . Rich nose , vanilla lemon tart , toasted nuts, touch of butter . Persistent and rich , ripe lemon , candied peel, orange rind , yellow fruit , quite creamy . Good acidity, lovely balance , rich though still mineral on the finish, structured. From now , though absolutely no rush , probably even better in 5 - 8 years, will last another 10 years. — 2 months ago

Pithos Bianco Terre Siciliane Grecanico 2021


A fascinating bottle. As other reviewers note, hard to tell just what you're smelling here, but definitely apricot/orange and acetone (in a good way). Super dry. Savory - not bright or refreshing - on the palate. Good match for fin fish. — 2 months ago

Lovely orange. Almond and cider. As others note, a bit less chewy than Radikons. A good intro versus some of the other more concentrated bottles. — 3 months ago

Viña Tondonia Rioja Rosé Blend 2008

What a treat! Tangerine, burnt orange peel, caramel, and wet dog. Sherry characteristics.
Absolutely one of a kind. Seems to have plenty of gas left in the tank.

I think the current release is the 2010. This is always fun juice.

@Severn Goodwin Wish I could get my hands on some more. Winery seems to be holding back and when it gets in the market it’s super allocated. Will be hunting it down!

Agree, I buy a few bottles any time I see it, which is becoming much less frequent.
