  1. Yes, but given the problem with tasting in depressurized environments, are you drinking the wine or the label? Could you tell the difference between high-grade Sauternes in a blind test?

  2. Wow, that’s some serious dessert wine. Interestingly a small glass is also very good with foie gras, the real stuff.

  3. Our Emirates 1st flight in May MXP – JFK had some South African dessert wine subbed for the Y’Quem. It was disappointing. Alas! (Really not the world’s worst problem, I know, but since it was a splurge for us, it was a shame to miss the Y’Quem.)
