Berry Brothers & Rudd:
Ch. d`Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world and who can doubt it when they produce wines like this. With an enticing nose of toasted nuts, vanilla cream and soft orange marmalade the palate is as impeccable as ever.

Notes
First Growth. Premier Cru Superieur Classe in 1855

 

  • 95 Robert Parker Jr.

    Light gold with a tight but promising nose of roasted hazelnuts intermixed with creme brulee, vanilla beans, honey, orange marmalade, and peaches, this medium to full-bodied offering reveals loads of power in its restrained, measured personality. There is admirable acidity, weight, texture, and purity in this impeccably made Yquem. Drink through 2060.

  • 94 Jeannie Cho Lee

    A subtle Yquem with layers of delicate floral, honeyed flavours which caress the palate. The long length and finely etched flavours are classically Yquem.
