    After having a glass of '73 Château d’Yquem the other day I thought surely I'm not the only oenophile on Real Jock. Although I'm not typically a fan of sweet wines, the d'Yquem was pleasantly sweet and well balanced. Some of my favorite wines are from the Bordeaux region, although not all. I have long been impressed with the first growth Château Haut-Brion and Latour wines.

    What are some of your favorite wines?

    But anyone would make an exception for Chateau d'Yquem.

    Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

    well, i've never actually tasted it...but i've seen a bottle. it was only $5000. some airline pilot bought it who lived in louisville. he sent his sister down to nashville to drive it back to louisville in a special carrying container.

    really. $5000?

    i'm a big fan of wine, but i'm more of a $15-$20 range...there's a lot of great stuff out there. not so much the big jammy kind, but something with some gumption.
