    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) This wine has a rich, golden hue, as might be expected! The nose is just fabulous; there is evident richness here, in the shape of some smoky botrytis, but what really sets the wine apart is the beautiful, crystal-like clarity it possesses. This characteristic carries through on the palate, which has a fine, cool purity and freshness, presented in a seemingly paradoxical fashion, as it is intertwined with great richness and a creamy vanilla seam which opens out, broadening across the palate. Wow! An amazing texture, with bright botrytis flavour and high quality candied fruits. I think this is an exquisite wine, and the lingering flavour affords plenty of time to reflect on this. And it will go for years yet. I find this much more impressive than my previous tasting in November 2004.

    (Y'quem) The '97 was full rich and packed with botrytis. Little less focused than the '90 but still great.

    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) A hot vintage, with slow onset of botrytis. Earliest recorded harvest, on September 4th. Six tries, with better botrytis later on. Showing a good, more golden hue. This is more like it; and expressive and impressive nose, with ripe, crystalline honey fruit and loads of botrytis character. Pure, impressive, balanced. This has lovely poise and is quite delicious. Creamy-oily texture but not over-the-top, tremendously rich finish and a great length. Correct acidity. A big, structured, yet seductive wine; this will go for decades.
