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

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

The nose is fruity, gourmand, deep, beautifully built and offers richness and a lot of freshness. It reveals notes of mango and apricot associated with a hint of grapefruit, lemon as well as fine touches of spices, lemon, flowers, yuzu zest (in the background), discreet touches ginger and a discreet touch of vanilla. The palate is fruity, gourmand, elegant, well-balanced, beautifully fine and offers richness, a small acidity and tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of roasted pineapple, apricot in syrup and jammy citrus associated with fine touches of candied lemon as well as fine touches of marmalade and white fruit (pear, nectarine). Beautiful length. Wait at least 2020 to drink it.
