An absolutely stunning lunch from @joe leatherwood today. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

Young, but a real joy to see how impressive this is currently and to imagine how much of a monster it will be in 20yrs. Intoxicating nose that oozes of honey roasted cashews, orange marmalade, and honey coated mango. Very dense and rich in the middle right now, but it has the classic minute long finish already. I waffled between this being either ‘01 Rieussec or mid-‘00s D’yquem.

Another stunner from #NYWE14 this is the definition of #liquidcrack. One of the most famous and sought after wines in the sweet and regular wine world. It's not just sweet, it's fresh, polished, light on its feet and packs a finish that lasts for several minutes . d'Yquem has no equal.

2009 Ch d'Yquem. These are just stunning wines. Turning sauv bl and semm (botrytised albeit) into these jewels is something to marvel at. '09 has an interesting nose of still some sauv bl grapefruit but then caramel and deep trop fruits. 4.2 acid.
