Tasting Notes

Staff Pick Notes

A wine for dreamers! Here is how this should go: It's summer in NYC, you are at the park, seated on a comfortable blanket, with a glass of Chateau d'Yquem in your hand, of course!

And they shall fetch thee jewels from the deep, And sing while thou on pressed flowers dost sleep. And I will purge thy mortal grossness so That thou shalt like an airy spirit go." Sweet dreams and cheers, my Love!
