Amber-golden color; honey, caramel, and tropical fruit on the nose; on the palate - rich, concentrated, and expansive, yet bright, highly focused and high-toned; elegant, harmonious and well balanced. A great Yquem that is delicious now but will last for decades.

This was a fabulous wine. Layers of sweet fruits...ripe apricots, nectarines and caramel in a surreal 30 second finish. If this isn't perfect it was damn close.

A medium gold hue with a haunting bouquet of spice, apricot, stone, vanilla, and corn oil. Bright acidity offsets intense sweetness. Mouth coating flavors last for more than a minute. Graham crackers, New York style cheesecake and white raisin on the finish. You can literally keep tasting the wine afterwards by licking your lips ? the concentration is that intense. You can drink now but the wine still really needs at least a decade and will last to 2030 and beyond.
