2008 Château d’Yquem
First Cru Classé
Bordeaux, sweet white
R. Parker rate : 96/100
Comments extracts in February 2012 :
« It has a subtle, delicate but very pretty bouquet with fine definition and astounding minerality. The palate is beautifully poised, tense and tightly coiled on the entry and then it just explodes in the mouth with pure, unbridled, joyous botrytized fruit struck through with a silver thread of acidity. »
Peak : to drink until 2050
