Tasting Notes d'Yquem 2002
The quality of the Yquem 2002 vis-a-vis the ensuing two vintages really surprised me: this is a superb Sauternes coming in with 125 gms/L residual. It has a wonderful lifted nose with superb delineation and sense of minerality with hints of coconut, roasted almond, limestone and nougat. Very harmonious on the palate, a greater sense of completeness compared to the 2003 and 2004. Vibrant acidity and focus with a smooth honeyed finish that I find utterly seductive. Bon vin! Tasted April 2008.
