Bonnes Mares Comtes de Vogue 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Ch. d`Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world and who<br/>can doubt it when they produce wines like this. With an enticing nose of<br/>toasted nuts, vanilla cream and soft orange marmalade the palate is as<br/>impeccable as ever. Whilst almost all 1996s are drinking now, this will require<br/>further patience.

A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2055.

Extremely concentrated, yet subtle. Aromas of honey and spices, with an intense botrytis nose. Full-bodied, thick and fruity, with orange peel and lemon rind character. Medium sweetness. Balanced, yet thick and backward. Reminds me of the harmonious 1990 - certainly the best since then. Best after 2008.

The 1988 is a more backward-styled Yquem than the 1989, built along the lines of the extraordinary 1975. With a honeyed, smoky, orange/coconut/pineapple-scented nose, this powerful wine possesses full body, layers of highly concentrated, extracted flavors, considerable botrytis, and a sensational finish.
