Stunning. Apricot, ginger, white peach with orange marmalade. Nutty finish. Never miss an opportunity to drink or taste Yquem

Okay, I get what all the fuss is about. Hard to believe that something so layered and 'sweet' can have such refreshing acidity. Like being inside a leaking beehive during the lightning storm

Showing terrific now. Better than last bottle opened 2 years ago. Honeyed richness, good length. Shows class joy would expect from the house.

Orange, honey, smokiness, roasted nuts, sweet spices and a bit of earth. M+ concentration. M+ acid, body and concentration. Honey, apricots, nutty. Slight bitterness on the palate. M+ complexity.
