Two bottles. First lacked any acidity whatsoever. Second was better but for Chateau Yquem was very very disappointing.

Still floral and vibrant. Wild flowers and honeycomb abound. Wow, just wow.

D'Yquem truly goes with everything. Orange marmalade, white peach and apricot. Truly stunning with boiled crab with butter. Indulgent for a Thursday
