Description

100    Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker’s Wine Spectator
“Pale to medium gold colored, the 2009 d’Yquem bursts from the glass with gregarious crème caramel, allspice, dried apricots, mandarin peel and pineapple upside down cake scents plus a fragrant undercurrent of fungi, acacia honey, candied ginger, musk perfume and frangipani. Full-bodied and full-on hedonic in the mouth, the rich, tightly wound layers are still amazingly youthful with bags of citrus sparks and an incredibly long, perfumed finish. Possessing a residual sugar of 157 grams per liter and 13.6% alcohol as well as a laser-focused line of freshness, the rock-solid structure and through-the-roof opulence here is simply mind blowing. Pure perfection.” (3/2019)

98    James Suckling
“The length to this is exceptional with an intensity yet subtlety. Full and medium sweet with bright and exciting acidity. It’s all in balance here. Creme brulee, pineapple, and papaya. Lasts so long on finish. It’s so fabulous now. It will age forever but it’s already a joy to taste, even drink.” (4/2012)

98    Wine Spectator
“The aromas are closed today, but the core is loaded with apricot, nectarine and orange notes, bolted by a citrus zest spine and backed by toasted almond and piecrust accents on the finish. A large-scale Yquem that shows the richness of the vintage.” (2014)

97    Neal Martin for Vinous
“This has a very refined and sophisticated bouquet with wild honey, brioche, vanilla pod and light orange blossom aromas, beautifully refined. The palate is very well defined with fine acidity, very elegant in style with pure botrytised fruit and superb acidity on the finish. Ah…that is more like it.” (3/2019)
