Half-bottle of Chateau Yquem 2017 Sauternes - Premier Grand Cru Classé
Tasting commentary and review by Lisa Perrotti-Brown of the Wine Advocate
"There was no frost at d’Yquem in 2017, and botrytis was very regular and even this vintage. The nose opens with very pure notes of freshly sliced oranges, yuzu and lemon barley water with hints of white pepper, fresh ginger and lime cordial. The incredibly rich, unctuous sweetness (148 grams per liter of residual sugar) is beautifully marbled with bright, vivacious citrus fruit and spice flavors, while lifted by well-knit freshness, and it finishes with epic length and great depth."
