Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1997

Honey-brioche and almond extract commingle with orange blossom, crystalline honey, light maple syrup and butter, marmalade with aromatic musk. The warm flavors of mouth-coating, unctuous citrus defy comparison, but evocative of marmalade hard candy, candied oranges, tangerine, clementine, nectarine, dried apricot, Meyer lemon essences, and baked apple and yellow pear. Golden; delicious.

Château Margaux

Premier Grand Cru Classé Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

So elegant and sexy. Deep ruby. Wet forest on the nose. The palate had so many levels. Velvety, full, dark chocolate, integrated oak, massively long finish. After 8 hrs still taste violets in my palate. Such a special bottle. Truly lucky to have enjoyed this amongst good friend. — 14 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1961

Taken to Hawksmoor in NYC for our uncle’s 75th. Decanted in hotel for 7 hrs before dinner. Dark reddish amber edges with dark tawny color center. Opaque. Great aged Bordeaux nose. Notes of black fruit, tobacco and cigar, cassis, old desk wood, saddle leather, some anise, some barnyard and a little mint. Rich and silky in the mouth. Long finish. The bottle (mid shoulder) wasn’t in as good of condition as the one we had a few weeks ago, but the outcome was similar. Family and the Somm all loved it, as did I. — 12 days ago

Château Pichon-Longueville Baron

Baron de Pichon-Longueville Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Wow. Very dark rubi rose, slightly bricky at the rim. Nose of blackcurrant, cedar, dark cherries and a hint of spices. Very elegant, complex and long in the mouth, one of the fines Pauillacs we had in a good deal of time, and we had some :) this is an outstanding bottle by all means. Enthusiastically recommended. — 4 months ago

Hell yes.

Billecart-Salmon

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

It’s everything you want from good champagne. Rich, unctuous texture with notes of brioche toast, vanilla, pineapple, pear, flint. While it’s big and rich, it still has enough minerality and acidity to keep it extremely drinkable. Fantastic. — 5 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

The Beaujolais 16’s are genereally very open for business. This wine has a clean nose with strawberry and cherry. Nice acidity, no red candy notes that I have come to really dislike with too young wines. Will be good for a handfull of years ahead. — a month ago
