With a nose that won’t let go, due to the intense floral, apricot, honey, pineapple, vanilla, custard and white peach aromas that take over the room. On the palate, the wine is rich, sweet, intense, long and fresh, serving up the difficult combination of honey coated fruit and acidity.
First D'Yquem, hope it is not my last. Every sip was a treat, even if it was young, with lots of acidity and some underlying hints of wood. I was puzzled by the fruit mix, kind of like papaya, quince, and apricot blended with a light honey. Very long finish, with mineral coming into play with the acid and fruit. From a 375 over 3 nights.
By the glass ($40) at Marche Moderne after long day of drinking. Very nice mouth coating papaya honey thing with hints of acid. Very balanced. Incredible finish. Would buy again for $40 glass after dinner.
Baby Jesus (Bouchard), Yquem, Madeira, Rhys, RM (John V.'s): This is outstanding but I expect a bit more from Yquem. Light golden in color. The nose has honey and slight apricots. On the palate, this is delicious with honeyed apricots. Lacks the verve of a great vintage. Finish lasts forever though. Great wine if not a great Yquem.
