Description

Served from an ex-chateau bottle. Consistent notes compared to the sample tasted blind at Southwold, the 2010 Chateau d'Yquem does not quite live up to the billing it showed out of barrel.

Certainly it does not possess the concentration of the 2011, the elegance or the symmetry. However, there is fine minerality on the nose and great transparency. The palate is fresh and harmonious, with a fine bead of citrus fruit and a penetrating, spicy finish that offers white peach and honeysuckle notes, yet does not possess anything close to the peacock's tail of the magnificent 2009.

Still, this is a fine Yquem. Drink 2017-2040+. Tasted March 2014.
