Not darker than any other 2001 Sauternes. Butterscotch and orange peel but not excessive sweetness on the nose. Some barley sugar and then on the palate such a lot of richness and weight and complexity. The merest hint of mouse but awfully lovely. Not quite as fat as Climens.

Drink Dates 2010-2100

There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years.

The greatest young Yquem I have ever tasted from bottle. Yellow, with a golden hue and an almost green tint. Intense aromas of botrytis, spices and blanched almonds follow through to honey, maple syrup, dried apricot and pineapple. Full-bodied, sweet, thick and powerful, with layers of fruit and a bright, lively finish. Coats the palate yet remains exciting. So balanced and refined, showing the pedigree that only this Sauternes estate can deliver. 10,000 cases made.

This is so layered and intense on the palate with lemons and dried pineapple, mango and honey. Full body, very sweet, but it remains tangy and vibrant. Shows such amazing balance and intensity. Crazy finish. Hints of vanilla and apple puree. One of the greatest Yquems ever. All about purity here.

Without question the single greatest liquid I have ever had in my mouth. That sounds so hyperbolic, and I am not one to toss out hyperbole just to make a point. This was honestly the most amazing liquid I've ever tasted. I was licking the glass at one point just to get the last hint of flavor. So rich, velvety, unctuous. A candy-store of fruit flavors, though not in an artificial, saccharine sense. Just deep and flavorful and delicious.

Simply the best wine I have tasted. If it were possible to condense the aromas, taste and feeling of an English summer's day into a glass, this is it. I have never tasted a wine like this, and was my first Yquem. I can almost still taste it... nothing like it. Beyond 100?

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
