Cellar/Tasting Notes
The 2005 d'Yquem presents with concentrated aromas of apricot compote, dried fruit, and figs with vanilla and floral aromas. Once the wine opens up, fresh citrus zest overtones enhance the elegance of the wine. On the palate, the wine is initially suave and caressing and exhibits perfect balance of acidity and restrained power portrays it as a wine of incredinle class. Prominent flavors of gingerbread, orange nonette cakes, and licorice followed by a beautiful long finish is definitely among the ranks of the wine's distinguised vintages.
Wine Enthusiast (WE): 97
"This isn’t sweet, but just so wonderfully rich. It’s the concentration of botrytis that makes the wine. The texture is velvet, but with a spicy bite to it. Apricot, honey and marzipan all contribute to a wine that will age over decades."
Wine Spectator (WS): 95-100
"Floral, lemon, apple and cream with dried pineapple and apricot. Full,bodied, but very focused and refined. It starts slowly and then, wham! It goes on and on. Spicy, dried fruits and spices. Full-bodied, medium-sweet. So long and exciting."
