Château D'Yquem Blanc 2001

4 /5

Le Château d'Yquem figure parmi les plus grands vins du Bordelais. Il s'agit du seul sauternes classé premier cru supérieur. Il est considéré comme le meilleur vin liquoreux qui soit. Le château est inscrit aux Monuments Historiques depuis 2003. Le domaine est aujourd'hui dirigé par l'homme de confiance de Bernard Arnault : Pierre Lurton. Il revient à ce dernier de veiller sur le plus prestigieux producteur de liquoreux du monde.

Ik weet niet waarbij ik kocht het.
Het had een erg saaie kleur. Het ruikt naar banaan. Ik denk dat zijn smaak iets zoutig was.

4/5

Discovering Chateau d'Yquem stats with the bouquet. Although not always very outgoing in young vintages, it is marked by fruit (apricot, mandarin, and occasionally tropical fruit) and oak (vanila and toasty aromas). Older vintages, on the other hand, have extraordinarily complex fragrance as soon as the bottle is opened. The bouquet is amazingly suble, with hints of dried fruit (dried apricot, prune, stewed fruit, and marmalade), spice (cinnamom, saffron, and liquorice), and even flowers (linden blossom, etc).
The first impression of Chateau d'Yquem on the palate is always very silky, and often sumptuous. It then fills out, "coating the palate". This fine wine has a strong, but never overbearing character, with great elegance and poise. It always mantains a balance between sugar and acidity (sweetness and freshness). A touch of bitterness can also contribute to the overall harmony. Chateau d'Yquem aftertaste is legendary, and it tells another story, which lasts and lasts...

Chateau D'Yquem Sauternes Premier Grand Cru 2002

4/5

In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château d'Yquem was the only Sauternes given this rating, indicating its perceived superiority and higher prices over all other wines of its type. Yquem's success stems largely from the site's susceptibility to attack by "noble rot" (Botrytis cinerea).
