2001 Chateau d’Yquem 1er Cru Classe Superieur
10,000 cases were made of the 2001 Chateau d’Yquem – this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. This Y’quem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years. Robert Parker 100 Points, Drinking 2010-2100.
