With a nose of vanilla, honey, flowers, apricot and tropical fruits with orange accents, the wine is rich, sweet and spicy with a honey coated, orange sickle and pineapple finish with refreshing acidity, but lacking the concentration and levels of sweetness found in the best years.
A half bottle. Straight from the cellar to show dinner guests what Yquem should be like after serving them 3 half bottles of the 1990, all sadly oxidised. Light in colour, good nose, fine complex flavours, but still young. More complex than the half bottle of '04 Climens served alongside it.
