My boyfriend brought me this wine bottle.
A beautiful vivid colour. It was light but tasted like blackberries.

I tried it during a wine tasting.
This Sémillon is very pleasing to the eye. I liked the Château d'Yquem 50cl, although it tasted a bit rough.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.

Some friends from Sauternes always bring it when visiting me.
Typical opacity of a Château d'Yquem. This sweet had a fun acidity on the palate.
