Château d'Yquem Sauternes 2003
The colour is already a very pale yellow. The nose has intense fresh fruit aromas (pineapple, passion fruit, and mango) accompanied by very attractive floral nuances (rose and acacia blossoms) as well as a touch of vanilla. This wine has a great deal of personality on the palate as well as beautiful volume, substance, and a perfect balance between alcohol, sugar, and acidity. The overall equilibrium is extremely elegant and lively. The complexity, smoothness, and length this wine will acquire during barrel ageing are sure to make this an altogether impressive Y'quem.
