Sure. It's not that rare. It's just overpriced. You too can try it if you want to pay the tariff.

I've always wondered.. are Bordeaux's and other French wines much cheaper if I were to buy over there on a trip?

Tried the '89 and the '01 this year. Really great stuff, and incredibly expensive, however, it is somewhat reasonable in comparison to the top red Bordeaux out there.

I had one for the first time this year -- a half bottle of the 2002. It was a $100+ well spent. Very balanced, elegant, not coyingly sweet. Clearly head and shoulders better than another Sauternes that was half (or maybe a third) of the price.

I had the 1989 for the second time a little while ago and was underwhelmed...again. This time it was along with a vertical at a D'Yquem tasting dinner. The 1962 also underwhelming - more of the monolithic profile of the 89. Young ones were ok but not worth the juice by any stretch.

I haven't tasted the 01. It may be stellar and worth the price.

The 1983 was stunning - had it the night after the D'Yquem tasting dinner. The 83 was a bit lighter than the 89 but way more complex and interesting. Ethereal. If you want to splurge on a great, aged d'Yquem, I'd recommend the 83.

That said, there are many other great Sauternes that you can buy 10 of for the price of 1 d'Yquem in any given vintage. Whether that is good QPR is up to each of us to decide.

I have to figure out how to be in the neighborhood when Board-O opens his last 1967.

Yup, that's the one. I think it's $80 for a 750 though.

We could invite him down here. Wink
He reports that his power went out about 10AM today or so.

Can be had for the low low price of $475.95 at Bay and King or Queen and Coxwell LCBOs.

If that's for a 750 you should back up the truck.

I like the 95 cents in the price -- like it's gonna be more appealing than $476.

Board-O. Come on down! I'll open something suitable to start. Let's say a 1988 Krug and a 1982 Mouton........

Not a chance, it's for a 375.

+1 I've had the 01 Guiraud 3 times, stunning each time. Opened a 1990 Guiraud at the last offline.

The most recent price (US) I paid for the 01 Guiraud was $60.

$160 last week for 01 Rieussec (but haven't opened yet).

WAIT! They reduced it by $100 so it's only $375 for a half!

No fair - 1967 is my birth year, and I'll take him to dinner at Kiki's if he brings it this way! Banana

CA has banned foie but I remember a 1986 yquem with that pairing that was magical. The 03s seem to be a good deal compared to recent prices.

On my 100th birthday, I plan on opening a 2001 Yquem from magnum. It might be too young but it should be tasty.
