4 /5

Wir hatten die einmalige Gelegenheit, Yquem 2003 als Vorpremiere im April direkt im Château zu kosten. Er zeigt auch diesmal wieder seine unumstrittene Überlegenheit gegenüber den gesamten, anderen edelsüssen Weissweinen. Denoch sind die Sauternes in 2003 im Schnitt sehr gut ausgefallen. Man kann Yquem 2003 mit einem Musikstück ohne falsche Noten vergleichen. Ein Wein für die Ewigkeit.Trinken oder lagern: Unendlich langePasst zu: Französische Gänseleberpastete

Provenance directe du Château d'Yquem


Dégusté au château en avant première à la fin du mois d'avril, Yquem 2003 avait demontré une fois encore son indéniable et séculaire supériorité sur l'ensemble des vins blancs liquoreux.
Et pourtant que 2003 est sublime à Sauternes... que de grands vins...

La robe est déjà d'un jaune très limpide. Le nez est intense de fruits frais : ananas, fruits de la passion, mangue s'accompagne de notes florales très agréables (rose, fleur d'acacia) ainsi que de légères notes vanillées.
En bouche, le vin est très expressif: Il présente un très beau volume, de la matière et surtout un parfait équilibre alcool/sucres/acidité. L'ensemble est extrèmement élégant et enlevé.

Yquem est une symbiose parfaite entre les divers éléments qui font le vin, une oeuvre sans fausses notes, un vin pour l'éternité.Boire ou garder: Eternel
ACCOMPAGNEMENT: Un foie gras

Our bottles come directly from Château d'Yquem



We had the great chance to taste this superbe wine en primeur at the château at the end of April. And we discovered an Yquem 2003 showing an induspitable superiority on all of the botrytised sweet white wines... even though 2003 is incredible for all of the Sauternes appellation.
Yquem is the perfect balance between all the elements that make a wine THE wine for eternity.Drink or keep: EternalDelicious with: Foie gras

4/5

Superior!
Noble, Yquem is the unique Premier Cru Supérieur of Bordeaux.
The robe is gold colour, this wine is silky. The bouquet is saffron. On the palate, it is sweety. Yquem is more than "superior".

It is distinguished, and rich.
Bordeaux could not exist without Yquem.
2006 had an excellent crop.
Climate is good and soils are different and rich.

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...

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).
