*375 ml. Tasted at the property 12 months on from my last visit, my note for the Château d'Yquem 2005 is almost exactly the same. I feel that there is still just a little new oak to be resolved on the nose. But the palate is extremely well balanced, perhaps just a little nuttier than I remember from 12 months ago, with hints of white chocolate and crème brûlée just appearing on the finish. This needs another decade, but it is a very serious Yquem in the making. 96 Points Robert Parkers, Wine Advocate April 2015.
Not a truly great vintage in Sauternes, but an exquisite wine. Delicate apricot and passion fruit aromas, elegant rather than explosive. Fine attack, bright and fresh, very intense and tangy, with stone-fruits and barley sugar flavors. Beautifully textured with vivid acidity. 94 Points Decanters, November 2015.
