dYquem-Sauternes-2013

d'Yquem, (Sauternes) , 2013

“Incredible aromas of botrytis, including freshly ground nutmeg and dried mushroom powder. Dried fruits. Full body with incredible clarity and balance. Very dense and gorgeous. Very sweet. It goes on for minutes. Really superb. A monument to the vintage. Breathtaking precision. A severe selection was made: 40% of the production was for the grand vin – about 80,000 bottles made. This is 70% sémillon and 30% sauvignon blanc – a little more of the latter than normal. They started harvesting the same day at Cheval Blanc, which is rare.” (98-99 pts) -James Suckling
