August 13, 2019 - Extremely luscious sauternes with rich peachy and citrus fruit, bucket loads of marzipan adds complexity and rich, botrysized finish makes for an outstanding wine
August 3, 2019 - Truly one of the great vintages. A beautiful Sauternes.
July 28, 2019 - blind, Gabriel standard, half bottle
It started a bit slow, alcoholic and broad. We had it firstly side by side with the Maximin Grünhaus and foie gras but we drank it 3 hours later with the dessert and then it showed his beauty and elgance. dried candied fruits as orange, apricot but the tertiary aromas didn't evolve yet. At the end really precise and more balanced. 96
July 27, 2019 - Outstanding wine, all the hype is true. Definitely improved after an hour. Apricot, orange, peach. 98 now and probably 100 in future
June 9, 2019 - 60-års dag og blinsmaking: Bøyer meg i støvet. Latterlig balansert og kompleks, fantastisk intensitet, lag på lag av krydderdominerte smaker, frisk. Har hatt noen ikke så overbevisende flasker de senere årene, fra halvformat, her var den tilbake i storform.
May 25, 2019 - The nose is out of this world! Sweet peach, oranges, and candies emerge from the glass. It was super complex and deep and evolved over the course of an hour. Lovely palate with good acidity and flavors of ripe orange and sweet fruit. Very long finish. This is very close to perfection, what a treat! 99-100
May 9, 2019 - New Zealand micro trip; 5/6/2019-5/9/2019 (North Island, New Zealand): Seville orange and lime marmalade with apricot compote, cream, the tiniest smidge of vanilla. On the palate it's sweet but with the purest acid line, ridiculously long, the aromas on the nose are reflected on the palate with some orange peel as well as a little sweet spice. Cripes.
March 17, 2019 - Complex aromatics of apricot, honey, lavender, coconut ice and vanilla. Awesome concentration and sweetness, perfectly balanced by the wines minerally acidity. A powerful, luscious and intense Yquem of superb proportion, length and class.
March 8, 2019 - From a 375. Decanted for 2 1/2 hours, rebottled & recorked, then opened & drank 4 hours later. Full-bodied, sweet tropical fruits, honey, still powerful and will be long lasting. Amazing & everyone loved it!
February 18, 2019 - Not even close to mature, but who cares? This is so good. Unctuous, fresh, concentrated, sweet and complex, the endless layers of ripe, very ripe, and overripe apricots, pineapples, and assorted tropical fruits all slather with honey is a show stopper! But that would not be possible without all of the wines concentration and the blazing bolt of acidity that gives the wine the fuel it needs to jump up, and keep on going. Drink this now, or leave it for your kids in 50 years, or your grandchildren in 100 years. It's that good!
