The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits peaches coconut and apricots. High quality subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity and a seamless full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity....An awesome Yquem!...

Truly superb. Yellow with a gold hue. Intense spice honey and dried orange peel aromas.Full-bodied very sweet and very alive. Vibrant Sauternes that goes on and on on the palate. Doesn't get much better than this...

Hugely concentrated and layered in the mouth; extraordinary sweetness cut by harmonious acidity. As with the best vintages of Yquem the finish goes on for a minute or more. Stains and stuns the palate. A huge wine surprisingly extravagant on the nose (earlier bottles have been far more restrained) but completely unevolved and a bit musclebound on the palate. May ultimately merit a higher score.
