Received this wine as a gift and looking for optimal time to thoroughly enjoy this gem.
This wine pairs beautifully and its finish is incredibly smooth. Some might find it rich but I think it is just buttery smooth and fruity. Many call this the benchmark of dessert wines and it's nearly impossible to disagree with them.
External Reviews for Lur-Saluces Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Bordeaux Supérieur Y
Beautiful apple vanilla and honey aromas with just the right amount of new wood. Full-bodied medium sweet with lots of pretty pineapple honey and new wood. Long and refined. A beautifully silky and balanced Sauternes. Lots of intensity and well-knit. Nothing comes close in this vintage. Best after 2009. (JS) Wine Spectator.
Young Sauternes often reminds me of pear juice and this wine tasted from a half bottle just couriered from Bordeaux was like nothing more than the healthiest cleanest pear juice. Pale gold with a slightly greener tinge than most young Yquem. Very fresh long and deep-flavoured this wine has that ingredient X that Yquem always seems to manage but this is certainly not one of the sweetest or most intense Yquems. It is certainly greater than any other 2002 sweet white bordeaux I remember tasting with the strongly possible exception of Climens but is almost spookily open for a recently-bottled Yquem. There
