Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, December 2006
Subtle and racy with lemon rind vanilla cream and dried pineapple. Very spicy and intense. Full-bodied with great length and flavor. Electrified yet refined with medium sweetness and a wonderful finish. I love the class... Subtle and racy with lemon rind vanilla cream and dried pineapple. Very spicy and intense. Full-bodied with great length and flavor. Electrified yet refined with medium sweetness and a wonderful finish. I love the class of this and the length. Has afterburners. Best after 2010. –JS

A massive Yquem, this has a dense palate that is almost chewy like a red. Full and very sweet, with notes of dried apricot, pineapple, and papaya on the palate. Long, with a vanilla-coconut tart finish. What a wine... A massive Yquem, this has a dense palate that is almost chewy like a red. Full and very sweet, with notes of dried apricot, pineapple, and papaya on the palate. Long, with a vanilla-coconut tart finish. What a wine, voluptuous, sexy, and luscious. 147 grams of RS. Pull the cork after 2015.

More complexity on the nose than the Rieussec. Marzipan. Richness. Citrus. Nerve. Really deep flavours with good acidity. Tense. Yes! 19/20

Picked in one trie, the 2003 Chateau d’Yquem is slightly deeper in color compared to the 2004. It is attired with an intriguing bouquet with Manuka honey, quince, honeycomb and a touch of nougat, though it does not have the pixilation of a top vintage. The palate is unctuous right from the start: gloopy in texture with hedonistic ripe honeyed fruit laced with orange zest and a strong spicy note on the finish. It has moderate length, but finishes with plenty of glycerine in the mouth. This is certainly the finest 2003 Sauternes. - NEAL MARTIN
