Chateau d'Yquem 2005 750ml
Sauternes, Bordeaux
Like everywhere else throughout Bordeaux, the 2005 vintage in Sauterne has produced an Yquem that is phenomenally complex, confirming the extraordinary quality of the vintage. This wine is perfectly poised and balanced showing honeyed tropical fruits with a subtle nutty finish. This wine is marvellous and in a league of its own
97 Neal Martin,
Vintage 2005 - Tasted at the château, the 2005 Chateau d’Yquem delivers a similar performance as last year. Lucid in colour, the bouquet is detailed with very pure honey, vanilla and almond scents, still a little new oak to be fully assimilated but demonstrating superb focus. The palate is virtually identical to last year's bottle: exquisite balance and perfectly judged acidity, but perhaps just gaining a little richness and viscosity over the last 12 months. There is an appealing completeness to this Yquem and whilst I would not place it amongst the likes of 2001 or 2009, it comfortably sits just behind.
