Château d'Yquem Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

A sensational Yquem, 1999 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1999'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. Note: Yquem spends 42 months in 100% new oak.

While it lacks the more eponymous vintages perfection there is plenty to enjoy in this wine. With pale gold tones, crisp mandarin, apricot... lacks some overall definition, leaves you somewhat short. Better in 2015?
