Ch. d’Yquem Sauternes 2003

Sweet Wine from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 01-Sep-2018
Full, deep golden colour. The nose is full and rounded with accessible and voluminous aromas of ripe tropical fruits and apricots, subtly intermixed with wild honey and nectar, nuances of raisins and a layering of orange marmalade botrytis with crystallised fruits. Some volatility is noticeable. Notes of caramel emerge, and the bouquet is wonderfully developed with a completeness. Very sweet, the flavours of very ripe tropical fruits, marmalade, honey and nectar unfold caramel with barley-sugar and toffee elements. The mouthfeel is very soft and smooth, quite unctuous, with the acidity soft in expression. The breadth and richness have sufficient cut and drive to prevent any flabbiness. This has come to maturity, but will still hold another 10+ years. 19.0-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $875.00
