BOW (9)

Parker (96)

The 2008 Yquem, now in bottle, has a nuanced bouquet, with scents of clear honey, lime flower, vanilla and orange blossom that is beautifully defined. The palate is very harmonious on the entry, with a fine thread of acidity, tense and full of energy like the 2010 tasted alongside, with notes of white peach, citrus lemon, clear honey and a hint of quince. Long and persistent on the finish, this is a very fine Yquem that might be over-looked between the 2007 and 2009, but is a superb Sauternes in its own right.

Winespectator / James Suckling (96)

This shows lush creamed peach, mango, green fig, ginger and clementine flavors, with a long, gorgeous, rounded finish. Not the power of a classic vintage, but none of 2008's angularity either, with beautiful precision and impressive range. Non-blind barrel tasting.
