SKU #1238544 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is best ygrec ever with pineapple and lemon. Full body yet vivid and fresh. Incredible energy and depth. Distinctive wine. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Ygrec is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon with seven grams per liter of residual sugar. It has an attractive nose with scents of nettle, dandelion, gooseberry and grass clippings, the Semillon taking a back seat to the Sauvignon Blanc at the moment. The palate is very well balanced with the 20% new oak nicely integrated (the remainder is matured in two-year-old Yquem barrels). It is very refined with lovely passion fruit and kumquat notes towards the second half where finally the Semillon makes its presence felt, with touches of brioche and lemongrass developing in the glass. What a gorgeous Ygrec. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2016)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This has a gorgeous whiff of toast, with alluring shortbread, lemon curd and white peach flavors. The long, creamy finish lets echoes of clementine and honeysuckle drift through. Rounded and creamy overall, but plenty long. A beauty. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases made. (JM, Web Only-2016) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Rather light nose but fabulous excitement underneath. Such tension and depth of detail. Very broad and nervy. (JR) 18/20 Inner quote mark (2/2018)

K&L Notes

The 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.

OK, so it is a bit above the nightly wine budget, but you should buy a bottle for that special night. Off-the-charts good.
