2006 "Y" (Ygrec) d'Yquem, Bordeaux Blanc

SKU #1058658 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark I rarely get a chance to taste this wine, and I certainly wonder why after tasting this fabulous, full-bodied, dry white Bordeaux. A terrific effort from manager Pierre Lurton and his staff, this totally dry wine offers up exotic tropical fruit notes, especially pineapple, along with some subtle smoky oak and mandarin orange. With terrific texture, a sensational mouthfeel, but with zesty acidity and a subtle use of wood, this is a fabulous effort that will probably last quite a long time, but who is going to age this wine, when it drinks so great at present? A tour de force in dry white winemaking! (RP) Inner quote mark (1/2009)

Outer quote mark Ripe, with a touch of honey as if the botrytis for the sweet wine landed on these grapes as well. This dry white has creamy wood, spice and apricot flavors, making a delicious ripe wine, even with a touch of sweetness to the finish. (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2009)

Outer quote mark This has turned creamy, with peach, apricot and tangerine notes caressed by heather honey and picking up a tangy green tea note on the finish. Long and very stylish. (JM, Web-2011) Inner quote mark
