A comparative tasting of some of the best mature sweet wines in the world.

Château d’Yquem is considered the best – or one of the best – sweet wines anywhere. As well as d’Yquem, we shall taste mature, rich challengers from other top Sauternes and from an Alsace Grand Cru, a Tokay Aszú, a Pedro Ximenez from Jerez, a German Auslese and a Coteaux du Layon Chaume.

For fun, the five Sauternes will be tasted blind. Votes for the best wine will be taken and a ‘pleasure per pound cost’ table will be constructed afterwards.
