Lovely, brilliant, golden-yellow color. Concentrated nose of apricot compote, dried fruit, and figs with vanilla and floral (jasmine and acacia blossom) aromas. The bouquet opens up after swirling in the glass to reveal extremely fresh citrus zest overtones that emphasize the wine's subtle refinement. 2005 Yquem starts out deliciously suave and caressing on the palate, with perfect balance. The fresh acidity and elegance complement the wine's restrained power, giving it incredible class. There are strong flavors of gingerbread, orange nonette cakes, and liquorice followed by a gorgeous acid tang that underpins the wine's beautiful, long aftertaste on a par with the chateau's most illustrious vintages. The tremendously varied and complex flavors all seem to vibrate on the same wavelength, melting into a subtlewhole.

This wine is on every wine lover's bucket list - Chateau D'Yquem is known for it's perfect balance between sweet honeyed fruit character, bright acid, and minerality. The 2005 vintage is highly collectable and would make the perfect gift.

The palate is quite restrained with well balanced sweetness versus medium to high acidity. Very long finish - a mineral ch... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Floral, lemon, apple and cream with dried pineapple and apricot. Full-bodied, but very focused and refined. It starts slowly and then, wham! It goes on and on. Spicy, dried fruits and spices. Full-bodied, medium-sweet. So long and exciting. It is ver... Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Chateau d'Yquem 750ml
