2015 "Y" (Ygrec) d'Yquem, Bordeaux Blanc

SKU #1253319 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This offers creamed yellow apple, green melon and verbena notes surrounded by a brioche and salted butter frame. The long and flattering finish lets a second wave of coconut, candied lemon peel and heather glide through. Clearly on the opulent side of the ledger, but there's a remarkably deft edge here as well. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark The Sauvignon Blanc (75% of the blend) was picked quickly from 25-27 August this year, the Sémillon on 3 and 4 September. It has six grams per liter of residual sugar and the pH, a sizzling 3.20. It has an intriguing bouquet of melted wax, white flowers and hints of sea spray, that marine influence becoming quite strong with aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry with fresh ginger and lemongrass, lively in the mouth with shades of orange rind and sour lemon towards the persistent finish. I would afford this several years in bottle and I suspect you will end up with a very distinctive dry Bordeaux from the most famous Sauternes estate. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

A lovely aromatic profile with notes of dried tropical fruit and lemon peel accompanied by a bouquet of fresh tarragon and chervil, bourbon vanilla, and ginger. On the palate, flavors of dried pineapple and lemon curd are accented by crystallized ginger. While the wine possesses a round mouthfeel, there is an inherent freshness to the wine. This charming Bordeaux Blanc is drinking quite nicely now. If contemplating cellaring, this will age gracefully over the next 10-15 years. A fantastic choice when needing to choose a white wine for a special occasion

This rich white wine is a powerhouse! It is composed of 75% semillon and 25% sauvignon blanc from d'Yquem's estate vineyards in Sauternes. It has the right amount of honey to set off the grassy notes of the sauvignon blanc, and an unbelievable amount of length and laser like focus. They use 80% one year old barrels that were used once for d'Yquem, and the balance brand new oak, and yet the oak is barely a feature in the wine. This is concentrated stuff!
