 DESCRIPTION

"Pale to medium gold colored, the 2007 d'Yquem delivers powerful scents of tropical fruits—dried mangoes and pineapple paste—accented by acacia honey, toasted almonds and woodsmoke with hints of chalk dust, kettle corn and lime blossom. The palate reveals one of those vintages that shape-shifts into an apparently drier style than it is, largely thanks to its uber-racy backbone of freshness and layered mineral-inspired flavors, finishing with a regal, satin-textured savoriness. Difficult to resist now, this will be one of those Rip Van Winkle vintages that can be predicted to cellar not just for decades but for generations. For number crunchers: 14.2% alcohol, 137 grams per liter residual sugar, and total acidity is 3.7 grams per liter H2SO4." Drink Date: 2026 - 2070, 98+ PTS Lisa Perotti-Brown – ERobertParker.com

 "(14% alcohol with 140 g/l r.s.; 70% semillon and 30% sauvignon blanc) Pale gold. Knockout nose of mirabelle, pineapple, spices and honey. Dense and thick but with racy acidity leavening the wine's liqueur-like flavors of peach, apricot and pineapple and imbuing it with superb energy. With aeration, this showed captivating notes of vanilla, toast and fresh and exotic herbs, plus a saline aspect on the very long finish. Still an infant, but already boasts terrific cut and purity of fruit.

 Director Pierre Lurton was thrilled to have a large quantity of wine at this high level of quality." 95-98 PTS Stephen Tanzer – vinous.com

"This is amazing. Full of spicy botrytis character, with smoke and piecrust underneath. Full and rich, yet not cloying or too dense. It's lively and long, finishing with intensity and power. A unnerving combination of wild ripe fruit and intense botrytis, with lively acidity. Really powerful. Should be a perfect wine. (James Suckling - Wine Spectator - Apr-2008)" - 96 PTS Wine Spectator

"Deep golden with an orange tinge. Very tangy. And thick. At the same time. Massive weight! Extraordinary fullness. An edge of something a bit corrective - almost bitter. Very big and hits you between eyeballs. Citrus pith. Needs to settle down and become more gentle. Big and round. Almost over the top. So rich!!!!! But definite bitterness on the finish. Winemaker Sandrine Garbay, who has been there an incredible 14 years, thinks the 2001 has more finesse. I agree." 19/20 PTS Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

"Medium gold, already quite evolved. Heady stone fruits and honey on the nose, with generous fruit. Very sweet and succulent but there's fine acidity to balance the palate, which has beguiling sweetness. Very long, with a minty finish, but a tad evolved for a young Yquem." Drinking Window 2015 - 2030 95 PTS Decanter

"Château d’Yquem, Sauternes. Impressively balanced, with new wood giving spice and the elegant fruit giving orange marmalade tastes. It’s rich, unctuous, but also restrained, the richness balanced with great acidity". 96-98 PTS, R.V. Wine Enthusiast

"WOW! At just 12 years of age, it's impossible not to be blown away by this wine. Rich, concentrated, unctuous and packed with multiple layers of sweet, ripe and very ripe golden fruits, honey, flowers and vanilla. What makes it all work is the blazing acidity that keeps it all so fresh and vibrant. You can wait decades for full maturity, and it will be worth the wait. Or, you can just pop a cork and enjoy the thrill ride as young Sauternes are not much better than this." 98 PTS, The Wine Cellar Insider.
