Sokolin 1994 d'Yquem Tasting Notes:

Violet in color and taste, the wine has a typically 2000s animalistic, wild side to it, though it is a bit older than that. Its black and saturated nose matches the wonderful complexity on the palate, a lace of cassis and ripe cherries and some leather with a thick flower wreath on top. Though the wine is delicate and fine, it's also massive in extract, invigorating with fruit and tobacco and deeply moving, impactful and profound like an emotional movie. It's one of those classics that you can experience hundreds of times and know that each time will be just as touching and important.

This vintage is for you if you're looking for much more than an intense red, and willing to pay the price for such an honor. The wine is intoxicating, unbelievably purple and looming with heaps of flavor and spirit just oozing out of it. Drink now or store up to a decade, you can't really go wrong with this bottle.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer d'Yquem: When a winery is considered by many to be the single best in its region, you know you're dealing with a titan. Chateau d'Yquem is a hugely influential and reputable winery located in the Sauternes sub-region, and their wines could make even Dionysus swell up in envy. There is not a single wine lover in the world we wouldn't recommend these wines to, and the reason becomes obvious as soon as you sip the godly nectar. The flavor profile is as beautiful as it is complex and precise, its sweetness latches onto you. The candied apricots, the aromatic flowers, the vanilla; it's hard to focus on one amazing flavor when everything mixes perfectly. Every wine fanatic keeps Chateau d'Yquem near the top of their priority list at all times. These wines' consistency creates a quality that's unbelievable.
Region Sauternes: The white wines of Bordeaux are sometimes sadly looked over, as the region is primarily known for their almost absurdly powerful and delicious reds. However, if you like a refreshing, sweet treat on a late summer evening or you wish to complete your journey through Bordeaux's finest wines, you should not skip a Sauternes bottle or two. Made from a carefully balanced mixture of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle grape varietals, this wine boasts an almost supernatural sweetness. This sugary nature can be attributed to the presence of noble rot that can cause the grapes to visually resemble raisins in a way. We would completely understand if a single taste of fine Sauternes brought visible tears of joy to your eyes, as the flavor is just that magnificent. As you swirl the liquid gold in your mouth, an orchestral performance echoes on, with a grounding double bass of honey and the sharpness and acidity of a passionate violin solo. Notes of peach, apricot and nut punctuate the experience, sending you sky-high with inspiration and pure, emotional bliss. Let us open the door to a whole new world together.
Type of Wine Dessert White: In the minds of many wine lovers, no food pairing matches the appeal of a dessert and an appropriate dessert wine. For those of us with a pronounced sweet tooth, dessert whites come in many shapes, sizes, and, most importantly, varietals. Whether you're dealing with an Austrian Pinot Blanc or a sweet German Riesling, it's hard to resist for long.
