CHATEAU D'YQUEM, 2011

SAUTERNES

“The Château Yquem 2011 has a complex bouquet, one that is very well defined with hints of petrol infusing the rich honeyed fruit, later melted wax and fresh peach coming through. The palate is well balanced with a strong viscous entry. Powerful, burly even, I would give this several years in the cellar to allow this Yquem to mellow and enter its stride.” - Robert Parker 94/100
