Château d’Yquem 2011 – Sauternes, 1erGrand Cru Classé Supérieur

A beautiful elegant nose, spicy and offers power, freshness as well as a beautiful finesse in its complexity. It reveals notes of quince, baked apple and slightly pineapple associated with touches of bright small yellow fruits, delicate hints of yellow flowers, acacia flowers, honey as well as a discreet hint of pâtisseries, saffron and a subtle hint of almost crystallized orange in the background. The palate is beautifully delicate, gourmand, airy, well-balanced, all in precision, all in measure, harmonious and offers a very beautiful spherical side (in the background), delicacy, silkiness, a beautiful freshness as well as fat. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of quince, candied pear and small notes of pineapple in syrup associated with touches of flowers, acacia, small yellow fruits, candied orange peel as well as hints of pâtisseries, candied kumquat / in syrup as well as a very discreet hint of brown butter, dried almond, saffron and beautiful spices. A very discreet hint of good bitterness on the finish (stretches the finish). A very discreet almost tannic aspect on the finish / persistence.
