This 10 year old white Bourdeaux blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc aged gracefully. The nose had that distinctive Yqem armoa of ocean breeze, wildflowers and honey. The taste was a lovely balance of sweet (honey, lavender, vanilla) and dry tartness (green olives, lime peel).

In certain vintages (oftentimes in vintages where the vintage conditions were less than ideal for the generation of Noble Rot), Ch?teau d?Yquem bottles a dry wine. In 2000, the wine?s blend was equal parts Sauvignon Blanc and S?millon. A mammoth wine in the mouth but its in the distinctive aromatics of a sweet Sauternes ? oak, pineapple, vanilla spice, lemon liqueur, wax, honey, and oily Sauternes sauce. The acidity allows the wine to remain graceful and an interesting and unusual tasting experience but at almost svelte despite its girth. A frankly delicious wine despite quite a high price. Light to medium gold color. The wine makes for it perfectly suited for entrees such as lobster.
