Editorial Reviews for Château d'Yquem Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes
very volatile, smells of insecticide, vibrant acidity in the mouth offers excellent balnce to the, no doubt, high level of rs. Really quite lithe on the palate notes of honey, roasted nuts, and dried fruits, papaya, pineapple and apricot but this wine is hot, hot, hot and it was served at about 65F. Between the volatility and heat this is only good at best.
External Reviews for Château d'Yquem Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes
The greatest wine of Sauternes and , according to the famous 1855 classification, of the entire Bordeaux region. It is sweet, golden and apparently, almost immortal.
Truly superb. Yellow with a gold hue. Intense spice, honey and dried orange peel aromas. Full-bodied, very sweet and very alive. Vibrant Sauternes that goes on and on on the palate. Doesn't get much better than this. Beautiful now,but wait. Best after 2010.
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.
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, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Chateau d'Yquem 1500ml
Smooth, spicy and generous, with a silky texture. Harmonious vanilla, peach, apricot, spice and honey aromas and flavors. Keeps pouring out the flavors on the long finish; brilliantly complex and generous. Should be a great one around 2010.
The favorite sweet wine of millionaires, Chateau d'Yquem has, not unexpectedly, turned in a brilliant effort with their newly released 1989. It is a large-scaled, massively rich, unctuously-textured wine that should evolve effortlessly for a half century or more. It does not reveal the compelling finesse and complexity of the 1988 or 1986, but it is a far heavier, richer wine than either of those vintages. It is reminiscent of the 1976, with additional fat and glycerin. The wine is extremely alcoholic and rich, with a huge nose of smoky, honey-covered coconuts and overripe pineapples and apricots. As with most young vintages of Yquem, the wine's structure is barely noticeable. These wines are so highly extracted and rich yet approachable young, it is difficult to believe they will last for 50 or more years. The 1989 is the richest Yquem made in the eighties, and it has an edge in complexity over the powerhouse 1983. It remains to be seen whether this wine will develop the extraordinary aromatic complexity possessed by the promising 1988 and 1986 Yquems. Last tasted 11/97
Pungent, rich and very fine. Exciting. Great stuff. Long and rich. 18/20 Jancis Robinson. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Chateau dYquem 750ml
