Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

Charles (Chad) Bucklin
9.2

More advanced color, nose, and palate then anticipated. Lacked freshness but there were incredible caramel, orange, roasted tree fruit, and honey notes. Structure was a little loose. Of course beautiful with #foiegras though. #chateaudyquem #sauternes #semillon #sauvignonblanc #noblerot #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine — 5 years ago

6 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú Furmint Blend 2002

Orange peel, honey, blossom flowers, delicious, fragrant, out-worldly, moving towards orange confiture, marzipan, apricot and dried prunes. Young palate, fresh and rich, honeyed, long aftertaste. THIS IS NUTS!! GO & GET A BOTTLE NOW!!! #tokaji #aszú #botrytis #hungary #sweetwine #noblerot — 6 years ago

Sine Qua Non

A star with #foiegras and a very impressive sweet wine coming from #california and the famous #sinequanon Unctuous is a the adjective for this wine. Rich coffee, fig, pineapple and noble rot aromas dominate the wine. The only thing that would make it better for me would be a touch more acid. This wine is incredibly impressive though. #mrk #nobleman #noblerot — 6 years ago

Château Pierre-Bise

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2005

A version 4 years younger that is pure fruit, delicate as the 2001 but maybe less developed, less complex. Nothing wrong with that, though 😸. Apparently the winemaker, Monsieur Papin, is called "the poet of Chenin Blanc" by the revered Andrew Jefford and if he said so my only aim is to look for more Papins to corroborate through a field research. Excellent! #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 6 years ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

This bottle had been opened and in the refrigerator for a few days before I tasted this but it was still quite lively. Filled of peach, orange, and honey. Alcohol stood out a little bit. Incredible concentration and power with an impressive length. Even with extended air exposure this #chateaudyquem felt incredibly young, tight, and structured. #sauternes #bordeaux #noblerot #semillon #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago

Château Pierre-Bise

Clos de la Soucherie Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu Chenin Blanc 2001

A mildly amber colour that makes me think of shrivelled grapes covered in mold. Too ethereal (light) to be a sweet wine, therefore I'd have it as an aperitif too. Apricots and honey and orange marmalade and walnuts and marzipan, tangy aftertaste. Not a cultural milestone like a Sauternes or a Tokaji but excellent in its own league. #cheninlikeadiamond #cheninblanc #loire #botrytis #sweetwine #noblerot #anjou #saumur #beaulieu — 6 years ago

Château Climens

Haut Barsac 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1970

8.3

Amber and viscous with a weighty feel on the palate. This #chateauclimens was dominated by brown butter and butterscotch. It lacked lift and complexity and had some edgy tannins. #barsac #semillon #noblerot #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine — 6 years ago
