Green apples, lemon wax, flowers, dried pineapple and honeysuckle make for an exotic perfume. The wine is fresh, crisp and slightly honeyed with touches of vanilla and yellow fruits with a touch of spice found in the lifted endnote. You can enjoy this on release, or age it for 15-20 years for more exotic nuances. Drink from 2022-2040.

A splash of freshness in the glass, the wine pops with loads of just-squeezed grapefruit, lemon peel, vanilla, line, passion fruit, tangerine and honeysuckle. Vibrant and juicy on the palate, all this needs is fresh seafood to make a perfect pairing.

Pale yellow in color, you find yellow citrus, lemongrass, pineapple, lime, crushed rock and floral notes open the nose. The green apple and citrus palate is fresh and refreshing. The wine was made from blending 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon. This splash of energetic, crisp fruit on your palate comes with sensations of lightly honeyed tropical fruit and rocks holds.

A slightly, lusher, rounder, sweeter style of Y de Yquem, combining incredibly ripe, pineapple, white peach, flowers and a dab of honey in the background. Even with more opulence in this year, the racy acidity blasts over your palate.

Fresh squeezed pomello, vanilla, lemon rind, flowers and the perfect honey accent kick things off. Vibrant citrus, stone and clean, fresh lemon carry this the rest of the way through.

Electric citrus, white a hit of white peach, honeysuckle, vanilla, flowers and crushed rocks hits your nose and palate. The wine combines a strong, racy nature and fresh, sweet, tropical citrus notes that hits the spot, especially with fresh seafood. Having some older vintages recently, this also ages quite well.

Lemon, lime, fresh citrus, grapefruit, green apple and vanilla scents lead to a bright, round, open, citrus and grapefruit packed finish. The style of this wine is going to please some tasters more than others.

Bright, peppy, energetic blast of grapefruit, lemon and honeysuckle with loads of fresh, yellow citrus with just a hint of honey in the finish. This is drinking in its sweet spot today.

With a tropical fruit edge, this reminded me of a dry Sauternes, when served double blind. Slightly oily, with plenty of crisp, citrus notes, the finish offered a touch of honey along with vibrancy.
