The 2009 Chateau d’Yquem is one showstopper of a wine and perhaps it is only in a vertical that you realize this is up there among the legendary wines of the past,” wrote Wine Advocate in their 100-point review of this all-time great. It’s a wine that will last a lifetime—and more—in the cellar.
Medium lemon in color, with the first notes of gold emerging near the rim. A classic d'Yquem nose from an outstanding vintage: pronounced aromas of lemon curd, honeysuckle, apricot marmalade, beeswax, lime zest, ripe mango, and spiced peaches. A powerful backbone of gushing, enveloping acidity on the palate is balanced by a silky-smooth texture. Layer upon layer of gorgeous, ripe flavors like orange flowers, vanilla bean, jasmine, roasted almonds, candied ginger, a touch of minerality. This is one of those wines you'll remember long after the last drop is gone.
