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

Wine of the night and the best 96 I have ever had. Amazing purity. Lichee, orange zest, apricot, minerals all turned up to 10. Perfect integration and concentration.

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
