2017 d'Yquem "Y" Bordeaux Blanc

SKU #1386459 95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark White peach and lemon peel notes mingle out front in this slightly exotic and very seductive white. A flash of shortbread caresses the finish, allowing white ginger and yellow apple notes to glide in for added range and length. Everything ripples, with finely beaded acidity. Beautiful and distinctive. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark The 2017 Y de Yquem was picked very early from 16 August to 25 August. It was released the week prior to my visit. Side by side, the bouquet is almost identical to the 2018 with green apple and hints of yellow flower, the Sauvignon Blanc very expressive (75% of the blend). The palate is sweet and a little more viscous thanks to the additional gram of residual sugar compared to the previous vintage with hints of nectarine and apricot laced with lemongrass towards the persistent finish. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

We open a bottle of this incredible wine for our annual Grand Bordeaux Tasting, and it was quite an experience. The dry wine of Yquem is really that... A Yquem dry! And by that I mean, the incredible quality, complexity, richness and elegance one expects in Yquem Sauternes, one also finds those qualities here as well. The aromatics of fresh picked summer peaches, citrous, orange flowers, honey, and even crème Chantilly with cloves, almost deceit one's perception that this would be a sweet wine. It is not. The soft, creamy textured palate, with all of those flavors caressing the taste buds, it is marked by a dazzling freshness and a striking dry finish. As I said, this is an experience.
