Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance!

Auction Spotlight: 1975 d'Yquem, Sauternes

Ladies and gentlemen, place your bids!

There are few wines more legendary than those from Château d'Yquem; it is the ne plus ultra of sweet wines and one of the most famous wines from Bordeaux. The estate's wines were already acclaimed in the late 1700s, when it is said that America's best known oenophile Thomas Jefferson wrote to acquire some. Made from Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes affected by botrytis cinera, the noble rot that causes grapes to shrivel and concentrates their flavors, d'Yquems are praised for their distinctive flavors and unparalleled longevity.

The three half bottle's of d'Yquem currently available in an auction lot that closes Friday, February 25th at noon, come from the extraordinary 1975 vintage, which critic Robert Parker said "may turn out to be the greatest of the modern-day Yquems" rivaling other spectacular vintages like 1921 and 1937 when he last reviewed the wine in 1998. The wines were impeccably stored in a professional wine facility since they were first purchased and are in excellent condition. Older vintages of d'Yquem are rare, especially in such pristine condition.
