  • Perfect bottle.
    Beautiful golden colour. Pure, clear.

    Wow! Lovely bouquet. Flowers, herbs, pineapple, apricots, tropical fruits, honey, lemonzest, botrytis and a slightly hint of marzipan and saffron.

    Very complex. Great structure!! Very good acidity in this wine. Lovely minerality. And the flavours are just magic! This is a rich wine.
    Long, long finish! The flavours last forever! Just magic :-)

    Just an amazing wine! Almost as good as the legendary 2001.
    This wine will get a perfect score in the future.
    And this wine will have a long, long life.

  • The 2010 Château d’Yquem was my preference over the 09 with its stronger line of acidity. It was rich and layered with great detail of exotic fruit. There was a touch of dried apricot on the finish and it was oh so long.

  • Unbelievably rich and concentrated nose, simply stunning. Complex floral and tropical notes - a show stopping nose; the palate is absolutely superb with great concentration and richness allied to superb length and depth of flavour. A real baby but a great prospect for the future. 95-99

    (Chateau d'Yquem (Sauternes)) Residual sugar 141 g/l, alcohol 13.5%. Lovely fruit character on the nose, with a fruit salad character. Very composed, a very elegant presence here, fresh and creamed and lightly honeyed, more a textural suggestion rather than a flavour or aroma element. Very defined and fresh. The style on the palate is in the same keeping, fresh, yet textured and harmonious, and so very typical for Yquem. There is botrytis here, showing through both in terms of texture and flavour. What is most impressive is the integration of the components, the slightly liquorous botrytis texture, and the fresh floral overtones lying with the exotic and citrus fruit tinges. And with it there is a fine grip and lovely acidity, that grip showing very nicely in the end which is freshened by some lovely acidity as well. Brilliant.
