    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) This has an intense and rich nose, filled with vibrant, juicy citrus fruit. There is a fabulous but exotic purity to it, with peach, mango and pineapple flavours, alongside vanilla and flower petals too. Pure, with an almost gritty structure, this has linearity and finesse combined. A bright and elegant wine, brilliantly styled, with obvious depth, something missing in the rest of the appellation this year. Very, very long. Wonderful.

    (Château d'Yquem (Sauternes)) A different character here; whereas Yquem often leads on fruit purity and intensity in its youth, as well as elegance, the first thing I notice here is the greater depth and grip the nose seems to suggest, moving away from mere fruit character to one more nutty and polished. The palate, however, is more restrained than expected, showing a very good and elegant composure, a moderate weight of fruit and substance, and as usual it s the fine precision of the wine that really betrays its class, that and the long, grippy finish of course. The fruits come with notes of vanilla cream on top. Great substance here.
