Chateau d'Yquem on Snooth

  • 1961 Corton Charlemagne and more! When tasted back in November 2009, this wine showed brilliant freshness and zing. A Camembert cheese nose, but just so subtle, combined with hazelnut, truffle. While the 1990 tasted just before started to show pleasing toffee aspects, this wine over time showed off custard pie, white pepper like the 1990, but wi... Read More

  • I am a wine newbee and I am almost angry that I have gone *ehem* 38 yrs and not really enjoyed wine like I should have. I'm starting to get a little more familiar with my local stores, however I'm not sure I could ever truly know everything there is to know about every wine out there.  So.....I have recently decided that I love a good Red Bordea...

  • Probably ought to just PM GdP on this, but I'll take any suggestions...We're having company over on Sunday.  They really like wine--his first gift to her after their marriage was apparently a case of Chateau d'Yquem.  (I have to get clarification on this story.)  Our daughters know each other from the community and the husband saw me updating Ce...

  • I’m so glad I found this tasting happening at my work's social clubhouse because my intended attendance at the trade tasting didn’t eventuate. I’m gutted that I missed out on the chance to taste the 2001 Cuvee Madame. I’ll have to dig deep into the pockets for a glass now, thank goodness for tax returns time! I had previously provided an introdu... Read More

    2008 Chateau Perle dArche SauternesOne of the worlds most famous wines happens to be a sweet wine. Chateau dYquem, from the Sauternes region of France, is a legendary elixir that can age for many, many decades. Alas, it also has a legendary price tag. Many hundreds of dollars...for a half-bottle. And while some day you may be lucky enough to tas... Read More

  • Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 2001

    Snoothrank:

    If this isn't a 100 point wine, I don't know what is. I am by no means an experienced Sauternes taster, but this just showed soooo much complexity and magic, that I don't know how it could improve.The wonder is that it WILL improve for decades to come. The Nose: carmel popcorn, coconut, spicy tartness, apricot and much more that I could not put ... Read More

  • All my scotch friends have special "end of the world" bottles. I suspect that many of us do, too. So, considering that the end of the world is supposed to happen in a matter of days per our Mayan friends, and that happens to coincide with the Christmas season.....what are you planning to open this Christmas?  If the world starts to come apart de...
