Château d’Yquem 2017 – Sauternes, 1erGrand Cru Classé Supérieur

The nose is fresh, fruity, elegant and offers a fine tension. It reveals notes of fresh/crystalized lemon, crystalized apple and small notes of pear associated with fine hints of crunchy pineapple, citrus zests as well as a very discreet hint of yuzu, fresh gravels and an imperceptible hint of honey. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, finely tight, elegant and offers a good definition, juiciness, a beautiful tension, finesse, a beautiful freshness, dynamism, racy minerality as well as a beautiful gourmand material. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crystallized/ripe lemon, crunchy/crystalized green apple and small notes of crunchy/crystalized vine peach associated with fine touches of crunchy pineapple, honey, discreet touches of kumquat as well as subtle hints of sweet spices, candied ginger and very discreet hints of nutmeg (in the background). Good length.
