2002 d'Yquem "Y" Bordeaux Supérieur

SKU #1079121 94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark I am amazed by this. Usually the dry Yquem is rather oxidized but this is lush and delicious. It smells and tastes like dried pineapple and mango. Hints of yogurt too. Full and rich with an opulent finish. Loving it. Decant an hour before serving and don’t serve it too cold. Inner quote mark (6/2016)

K&L Notes

This is the rarely seen dry white wine of d'Yquem. The chateau produces this wine in certain years when conditions permit. 'Y' comes from the same exceptional terroir and vines as Yquem's famous sweet wines. It benefits from identical strict vinegrowing methods, but is harvested and produced differently. 'Y' is produced when the deliberate decision is made to pick certain plots of sauvignon blanc grapes at the beginning of the vintage and overripe Semillon grapes later on. This accounts for the small quantities and irregular production. There have been only 23 vintages of 'Y' since the first one in 1959! Serve with foie gras if you wish; it is also wonderful with seafood and white meat dishes.
