4 /5

An exciting vintage, where Yquem's diverse terroirs played a major role in juggling sugar levels that varied between rich, botrytised grapes and those less affected by noble rot, but full of amazing flavours that contributed enormously to the wine's aromatic complexity.
The cellar team still remembers the heady fragrance that emerged from the winepress

4 /5

Un millésime passionnant, où la diversité des terroirs joue un rôle capital dans la maîtrise des degrés, entre l'extrême richesse de baies rôties d'un côté et l'apport de grains moins évolués, mais porteurs de saveurs étonnantes et participant de l'intense complexité aromatique du vin ; un puissant bouquet d'effluves dont l'équipe du chai se souvient encore

4 /5

Um vintage emocionante, onde a diversidade de solos desempenha um papel vital no controle da graduação entre a extrema riqueza das bagas assadas de um lado e a entrada de grãos menos evoluídos, mas detentores de sabores incríveis e participando na complexidade aromática intensa do vinho; um bouquet de aromas poderosos deixando recordações que a equipa do Château ainda se lembra

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...
