d`Yquem 2009 (100WA) (750ML)
100 WA 98 WS
"Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2009 Chateau d’Yquem is one showstopper of a wine and perhaps it is only in a vertical that you realize this is up there among the legendary wines of the past – the 2001 included. It has a wonderful nose that expresses the Semillon component majestically: heady aromas of lemon curd, nectarine, jasmine and honeysuckle that all gain momentum in the glass. The oak is supremely well-integrated. The palate is extremely well-balanced with an unctuous entry.

The 2009 is utterly fabulous and decadent, a star that will blaze brightly and undimmed for many years...100" WA 06/14 "This is intense.

Great freshness on the finish, but with so much botrytis character as well.... 99+" JS 1/11 "Dense and unctuous, but with lacy detail already showing along the edges, as light toasty hazelnut and piecrust notes lead the way for creamed melon, mango and pineapple flavors, with hints of green plum and honeysuckle. There’s mouthwatering drive on the finish, which drips with a rosehip honey note that keeps pulling you back. Stunning...98" WS 4/12
