Chateau d'Yquem 2008 375ml
Sauternes, Bordeaux
The 2008 vintage was challenging with bouts of frost and up and down temperatures. When it matters most the botrytis flourished in September helping create a fantastic aromatic purity. This wine exhibits a more subtleness unlike other vintages but has core of richness and depth. When the wine hits your mouth it is coated with layers of honey, apricot, marzipan and spice. This wine should age for some time.

Vintage 2008 - Tasted single blind against its peers. The Yquem 2008 is easy to spot in a blind line-up: it is (to quote Tina Turner) simply the best. It has a subtle, delicate but very pretty bouquet with fine definition and astounding minerality. The palate is beautifully poised, tense and tightly coiled on the entry and then it just explodes in the mouth with pure, unbridled, joyous botrytized fruit struck through with a silver thread of acidity. It displays exemplary tension and freshness, along with great persistency in the mouth. This is an outstanding Sauternes 2008 and another impressive Yquem. Tasted January 2012.

Vintage 2008 - Quiet on the nose. More spiced pear and apricot than orange. Lovely concentration. Spiced power, depth and quite warm on the finish. Fresh in a powerful rather than a delicate way. Dense and long. Rich and well integrated oak though there's lots of spice all the way through. A less delicate style than many in this vintage.
