2002 Lur-Saluces "Y"  (Bordeaux Supérieur) 93

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.

1978 Lur-Saluces "Y"  (Bordeaux Supérieur) 92

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.

1966 Lur-Saluces "Y"  (Bordeaux Supérieur) 95

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.
