Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 2000

92 Wine Spectator
(7/2014) "Forward and flattering, with unctuous marmalade, blood orange, apricot chutney and ginger notes. Juicy and engaging, but without the finely beaded acidity to stretch out fully.-Non-blind Yquem vertical. Drink now through 2035."

Via Revolucionaria "Hulk" Mendoza Semillon 2016

92 Wine Advocate
(12/2016) "The sharp and saline 2016 La Vía Revolucionaria Semillon Hulk is a Semillon from Tupungato with only 10% alcohol. The idea was to recover the Semillon variety from Valle de Uco and in 2011 he started making a very fresh wine that in his mind represents the valley. It is more about the soil and the mountains than the variety, keeping the acidity by harvesting very early--usually at the end of January. In 2016 he harvested in late February, yet the wine still has the tension and electricity that it had in 2011--something he hadn't managed to achieve since then. It's bottled unfiltered and is a little cloudy with an austere nose, in a year he considers the best for whites in the Valle de Uco. The palate is light and almost effervescent, with citric acidity. Vía Revolucionaria is sourced from organically-farmed vineyards with natural fermentations and no added sulfur, yet the wines are precise and clean. This is bottled right after the fermentation is finished. This comes from a five-hectare plot that was about to be ripped up. Matías convinced the grower to keep one hectare of Semillon for him, with the grapes at the same price paid for Malbec from Gualtallary, which is significantly higher than the price for Semillon. Electricity in a bottle. 2,600 bottles where bottled in May 2016. Drink Date: 2017 - 2021."
