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.
