Liquid gold in #HongKong with bottles of the Queen of #Sauternes #Yquem in stunning vintages such as 1986.....

Buried under a sweet creme brûlée layer is a mound of washed hot-house peaches. Orange peel spirals around a centre of passionfruit, drizzled in honey. A conch of white chocolate provides a structural weight and is lifted by candied vanilla and smoked almonds. Burnt butter is combed through the zingy acidity and there is a bright periwinkle freshness from a lily of the valley scent. A cone of butterscotch leads to a finish of mother of pearl purity and a smoked pine note.....

White wines served at the Château Angélus dinner @stripsteakmia  The 2014 Château Malartic Lagravière was light on its feet, fresh, and highly expressive. I never tire of fresh and young Bordeaux blancs like this wine. It’s definitely worth picking up a few bottles. The 2009 Château Guiraud from #Sauternes was rich, round, and deliciously sweet. Time will be kind to this wine as it ages. It’s still years away from its peak..

I am not usually a big fan of sweet wine but this Sauternes killed it. The Lur Saluces family used to be the owners of Cháteau d’Yquem.

The 2010 Château de Fargues was paired with an asparagus dish topped with bacon. Unusual? Yes, but it worked very well as the Sauternes was perfectly balanced with great acidity and length. I would like to put a case of Fargues in my cellar 📸 #AlpineCellar.

Château d’Yquem is the only estate that I know, that is always, invariably, inevitably and without fail considered as the best of its kind, on another level. It may appear surreal that its superiority makes such agreement, but when you get on site it makes just so much sense.

Château d’Yquem has about 100 hectares of vines in production and Sauternes has about 1400 hectares in all. It is a huge part of the appellation, with a very central standpoint. It’s like a small community within a small village. If you happen to brag about going for a visit, everyone will tell you to say hi to Sandrine, the winemaker, like she’s their very best friend. There’s a sense of prestige around the estate but also proximity and a very welcoming atmosphere.

From the XVIth century old castle, on top of the hill, you get the feeling that you’re on top of the world. It is the highest point in Sauternais, surrounded by the Garonne, the fresh Cirons and the Landes Forest, the location benefits from a very precise microclimate that makes all the difference. Of course, special conditions are necessary for the precious Botrytis Cinerea to corrupt the grape in a controlled, regular way, but place is even more special. By standing on the land of Yquem, you understand how drenched by the sun it is and how the unique strong winds circulate between the rows of vines.

Each bottle of Château d’Yquem is a rare nectar to be that has been specially selected on various level of production. From the 3 times a day hand harvest which can take up to two months to complete, to the pre assembly of the different plots until the end of the aging two and half year later, the very best Know-how and meticulousness is necessary. There’s been multiple years when the great Yquem wine has not even be produced. Nine vintage are missing in the last century: 1910, 1915, 1930, 1951, 1952, 1964, 1972, 1974, 1992 as well as the more recent 2012..

After @vinitaly_verona I went to dinner with my friend @tommaso_di_giacomo in my favorite Enoteca, Malandrina in Valeggio sul Mincio. I tried very good wines like Champagne, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Sauternes. I had an amazing wine experience. This place has a great selection of wines!

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes Premier Grand Cru Classé 2011 Bordeaux, France

Dark gold in color.

Beautiful nose of lemons, citrus, spices, honey, butterscotch, carmel, hazelnut, mango, apricot and minerals.

Full bodied, buttery and bold, with high acidity and nice legs.

Sweet on the palate with citrus, lemon grind, oranges, honey, peaches, nuts, apricots and Mediterranean spices.

Long finish with honey suckle and spices.

This first growth sweet wine is a delicious one from Bordeaux. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Big and bold, sweet and well balanced.

This one can be aged for a long long time, although it is so yummy now.

This 2011 vintage was magnificent in Sauternes. Tasty, complex and delicious. I loved it.

Robert Parker 95 points.

A blend of 95% Sémillon, 3% Muscadelle and 2% Sauvignon Blanc.

14% alcohol by volume.

98 points. $90. .

In a week full of amazing food and wine experiences dinner at the Michelin star @hotelrestaurantlalique @chateaulafauriepeyraguey was one of the highlights. I wasn’t eating pine cones that’s foie gras matched with a choice of dry white from the property or Sauternes infused with elderflowers - very seasonal. #foodandwinetour #foodandwinematching #wineanddesigntour #sweetwineandfood #bordeauxwinetour #sauternes @winepathstravel.

🌑🥂Clos des Lunes 'Lune Blanche' 2015
-
📝 A satisfying great vaule bottle that's worth seeking out! Beautiful aromas of honeysuckle, pear, grapefruit, white peach and lychee jumping out of the glass, while the 70% Sémillon boost creaminess and roundness, providing a relatively full-bodied and balancing acidity on the palate. .

My #tbt or #tbt to my first visit to @yquem_official ! A magical and memorable day... the weather was overcast and there was a fog in the vineyard. It was more than magical. Almost spiritual (anyone that’s had this liquid gold or visited the chateau will agree 😘) While I walked through I felt like angels were among me and all I wanted to do was be still and silent and breath it all in and I did! .
