Château Dyquem' Château Dyquem Premier Cru Classé Supérieur' 2003
Tasting Notes :The color is already a very pale yellow. The nose has intense fresh fruit aromas (pineapple, passion fruit and mango) accompanied by very attractive floral nuances (rose and acacia blossoms) as well as a touch of vanilla. This wine has a great deal of personality on the palate as well as beautiful volume, substance, and a perfect balance between alcohol, sugar and acidity. The overall equilibrium is extremely elegant and lively. The complexity , smoothness, and length this wine will acquire during barrel aging are sure to make this an altogether impressive Yquem.

Nestled in the southeasy of Bordeaux, Château d’Yquem is the world’s most sought after dessert wine – the benchmark by which all other dessert wines are judged.
Exquisitely refined apricot nectar with overtones of honey on the nose and in both the flavour and texture. (This delightful apricot theme becomes subdued if the wine is too chilled but quickly arises again as the wine warms up). Incredibly silky and unctuous palate. As smooth as glass but with a beautiful citrussy edge on the finish that stops it being cloying despite its wonderful intensity and texture. A voluptuous and superbly balanced work of art. Taste is sheer beauty. Lip-licking sweetness and intensity. Almost indescribably complex. Apricots, honey, cumquat marmalade and so much more. Glorious flavours that linger for minutes and minutes in typical Yquem fashion. Initially seemed far too good to drink with a dessert, and instead deserving of its own time. However, the flavours build so powerfully in the mouth that, on sharing a second bottle on the following day, it was apparent that this Yquem benefited from a small serve of subtle lemon tart to cut some of its overwhelming flavour build up. An almost divine experience. Greg Munyard - July 2009

External Reviews for Château Dyquem' Château Dyquem Premier Cru Classé Supérieur'
Wine Spectator ReviewSubtle and racy, with lemon rind, vanilla cream and dried pineapple. Very spicy and intense. Full-bodied, with great length and flavor. Electrified yet refined, with medium sweetness and a wonderful finish. I love the class of this, and the length. Has afterburners. Best after 2010.

"This unusual vintage will not doubt remain a benchmark for many years to come. An extraordinary summer, "total" Botrytis, and the sacrifice of part of the estate made it possible to harvest grapes with optimum fruit and concentration
