    (d’Yquem) Even though I am not a big drinker of sweet wines, it was hard not to notice the greatness of the 2001 Yquem.  This was so rich, so oily, so special, with coconut and cocoa butter and an exotic passionfruit, peach and apricot three-way unfolding dramatically in front of me.  So creamy, so incredible, it was much more than just so so.

    (d’Yquem) 2001 d’Yquem was on tap again for the finale.  It coated my tongue with coconut, cream, peach and sweetness.  Luscious and unctuous, it only got (98) this time.

    (Château d'Yquem) From 375 - bright canary yellow color; big, tropical fruit, orange cream, coconut, lemon and creamy lime nose; rich, delicious, ripe lemon, lime and orange cream palate; long finish 96+ pts. (drinking remarkably well now, but with so much potential for additional complexity)

    (Château d'Yquem) From 375 ml - orange honey nose; dense, lovely essence of brown sugar, but with less acid than I'd expect; long finish 94+ pts.

    (Château d'Yquem) Lovely, big coconut and apricot nose; great, concentrated, solid, youthful, coconut and tropical fruit palate; long finish (80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc)

    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) For young Yquem this is a remarkably obvious, open and expressive wine, showing plenty of character on the nose, with an appreciable depth of botrytis too. Rather dense and concentrated on the palate, with great depth, yet this is clearly a tightly coiled wine that will need a long time to show its true and full potential. Nevertheless, at present it offers up plenty of barley sugar and floral sweetness framed by a fine acidity. The palate gradually unfolds with time, fanning out, with a reserved elegance that belies a wonderfully balanced structure. This has great finesse, and will undoubtedly age beautifully; its future will be measured in aeons of cellar time rather than mere years. Outstanding.
