Pungent, rich and very fine. Exciting. Great stuff. Long and rich.

A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate.

Extremely concentrated, yet subtle. Aromas of honey and spices, with an intense botrytis nose. Full-bodied, thick and fruity, with orange peel and lemon rind character. Medium sweetness. Balanced, yet thick and backward. Reminds me of the harmonious 1990--certainly the best since then. 14,000 cases made.

Yellow golden color, medium bodied and legs. Aromas of honey and spices. Unctuous. Warmed apricot flavor. Hints of orange and orange peel later. Fruity flavors linger softly for a full minute. Straightforward. Lovely wine.
