Château d’Yquem – 1er Grand Cru Classé Supérieur, Sauternes – 2013

A great wine for a vintage synonym of success stories for Bordeaux sweet wines. The nose is rich, elegant and aromatic. It reveals aromas of ripe white peach, nectarine, apricot, exotic fruits (including pineapple and mango), caramel and spices (vanilla) . The palate reveals a great finesse, elegance, concentration and a beautiful purity. It expresses notes of nectarine, pear (mid-palate) and pineapple associated with some spices. Presence of a small acidity helps bring freshness and reduce mouth. The finish is intense and persistent.
