With an interesting nose combining Riesling like petrol scents with the smells of tropical fruits and citrus rind, the wine is fresh, elegant, plush and drinking in a great place today.

Y is the dry white wine of Chateau d’Yquem. This powerful, intense, concentrated wine is filled with ripe tropical fruit, vanilla, floral and mineral notes. This richly textured wine, lingers on your palate with sensations of lightly honeyed tropical fruit and rocks.

With hints of peach and apricot, that adds a touch of sweetness to the strong citrus component, the wine is medium bodied, bright and crisp.

A fabulous wine. Lemon wax, honeysuckle, orange rind, vanilla and butterscotch hit your nose. On the palate, the wine is silky, lush, rich, round, fresh, fruity, long, sweet and clean with a honeysuckle tinge to the citrus. Every sniff and sip was a pleasure.

Lemon, lime, dried pineapple, and a light touch of caramel with a background note of honey create the nose. The wine is bright, and semi-sweet, and finishes with a sweet/tart, lime and green apple note. Drink from 2023-2025.

What a nice surprise to see this bottle at a tasting and the surprise got even better when tasting it. The nose offered white peach, honeysuckle, floral, vanilla and cantaloupe scents. Medium bodied, soft, delicate and charming, the only issue was, perhaps it is a bit too short in the finish. This is a great example of a fully mature, dry Sauternes.

Truly, it was a treat to taste the oldest bottle I've ever seen of Ygrec. On the nose, it reminds of a lighter, lesser vintage of Yquem, without a lot of botrytis. Apricot, orange, honeysuckle, tangerine and spicy, orange tea defines the nuances. Not quite sweet, with a jolt of acidity, the wine has heft, sweet, orange honey and hints of orange tropical fruit on the palate. I wish I had more of this in my cellar.

Exactly like what you imagine a dry d'Yquem would smell like with its honey, dried apricot, caramel, butterscotch, dried pineapple, and spice-filled perfume. Crisp, semi-sweet, and salty on the palate, the finish with its mild, honey accent that rides along with its yellow and orange fruits seal the deal. Drink from 2023-2027.
