Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 RP / 96 WS

A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estates finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997s light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2055. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

A pure style, with intense acacia, white peach, apricot, nectarine and tangerine notes that are long and racy, set against a gorgeous singed almond backdrop. Pulls together orchard and tropical fruit flavors on the long, refined finish.Non-blind Yquem vertical (July 2014). Drink now through 2035. 14,000 cases made. James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
